Think What We Think…Or Else: Thought Control on the American Campus

April 2, 2009

In the fall of 2007, the University of Delaware’s Office of Residence Life employed mandatory dormitory activities to coerce students to change their thoughts, habits, and values to conform to a highly specified ideological agenda. Following FIRE’s campaign, which called the attention of the national media to the Orwellian program and outraged people from all over the political spectrum, UD President Patrick Harker terminated the program. This documentaryproduced by FIRE and Free to Choose Mediaexplains the program’s invasive thought-reform activities, the horrified reactions of students and faculty, and FIRE’s response.
