American Satellite Campuses

This resource offers a map of American universities’ overseas satellite campuses. It lists the American accreditor that recognizes the satellite institution, whether it offers a commitment to academic and expressive freedoms, and what rating watchdog organization Freedom House assigns to its host country. FIRE hopes to offer prospective students and faculty a greater understanding of the state of free expression at the overseas campuses at which they intend to study or teach.
