The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression and College Pulse present the College Free Speech Rankings, a comprehensive comparison of the student experience of free speech on their college or university campuses. The rankings are designed to help parents and prospective students choose the right college.

Surveys conducted by FIRE and YouGov analyze college students’ attitudes toward free expression, free association, and due process on college campuses. The surveys include questions about self-expression and censorship, disinvitations, hate speech, student fees, student groups, procedural protections such as cross-examination and the participation of advisors, and the purpose of campus disciplinary proceedings.
