On September 7 2022, FIRE, in partnership with College Pulse, released the third annual College Free Speech Rankings, ranking the speech climates of 203 of America’s largest and most prestigious campuses.
In this course, you’ll learn about how the right to freedom of speech has evolved over human history, how it promotes peace in society and uplifts minority voices, and why censorship is never the answer to dissident speech.
FIRE, in partnership with New York University’s First Amendment Watch, has developed this series of lessons for universities to utilize when teaching incoming students about their free speech rights and the principles behind the First Amendment.
Before you can become a free speech advocate at your school, know what rights the First Amendment protects, how those rights apply to university students, the ways you can take advantage of those rights, and how to promote them on campus.
Take this course to learn more about how American universities treat due process and empower yourself to use your knowledge of due process to make your school’s conduct process fairer for you and your peers.
