Valdosta State U Victory Discussed in ‘FIREside Chats’ Episode

September 22, 2008

Last week, FIRE was thrilled to announce that after months of pressure, Valdosta State University (VSU) revoked its unconstitutional free speech zone policy and restored free expression to VSU’s campus. In today’s episode of FIRE’s podcasting series, FIREside Chats, Will Creeley and Robert Shibley discuss the events that led to this victory and the removal of VSU from FIRE’s Red Alert list. The four schools that remain on this list should take a lesson from VSU, give back the essential rights they have abridged, and enjoy the restoration of their good names.

Listen to the entire episode of FIREside Chats, and check back every Monday morning for new podcasts.
