Is SUNY Brockport in the House?
As those who follow FIRE may know, last year we coordinated a speech code lawsuit against the State University of New York at Brockport (SUNY Brockport). This lawsuit is ongoing, and we here at FIRE are wondering if any of our readers out there know any students at SUNY Brockport—or if they’re SUNY Brockport students themselves. If so, we’d love to get a chance to talk to those students about living in that environment. If you know someone at Brockport, or if you’re there yourself, please shoot us an e-mail at the “comments” link below. Thanks!
