According to a study released on Saturday, Oregon State University is one of 18 colleges across the United States without restrictive free-speech policies.

From the Oregonian:

“The University of Oregon has at least one policy that restricts free speech, while Western Oregon University’s policies are ambiguous, the report found. So says the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), a nonprofit student-rights group in Philadelphia.”

FIRE reviewed the written policies for 437 universities to determine if those policies restrict free speech.

According to the press release accompanying the report, Oregon State was also one of three universities that “eliminated all of their speech codes” this year.
