In Case You Missed It…

January 4, 2008

Here’s a look back at some of our end-of-the-year media coverage, in case you missed some of these stories during your holidays:

  • Reason and The Chronicle of Higher Education both covered the release of FIRE’s Spotlight on Speech Codes 2007: The State of Free Speech on Our Nation’s Campuses. For the full text of the report, please look here.
  • The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on our case at St. Louis Community College, where a student was placed on disciplinary probation and found guilty of hazing and several other offenses simply for e-mailing other students about his plans to withdraw from a course there.
  • FIRE also was mentioned regarding a free speech zone controversy at Winston-Salem State University. The school’s new free speech zone policy, on its face, limits unscheduled speech and assembly to a single outdoor “breezeway” on campus and requires three days’ notice for students who choose to schedule their speech or assembly.
