Pledge your support for the Chicago Statement

By April 3, 2018

The “Report of the Committee on Freedom of Expression” at the University of Chicago (better known as the “Chicago Statement”) is an eloquent and overarching statement of principles endorsing free speech and inquiry, noting that “it is not the proper role of the University to attempt to shield individuals from ideas and opinions they find unwelcome, disagreeable, or even deeply offensive.” I would be proud to see my institution take a leading role in the national debate about campus free speech by encouraging robust dialogue and debate among its students and faculty. By signing this petition, I am indicating that I support this policy statement and ask that my institution adopt it.
