Most American colleges and universities maintain unconstitutional speech codes, concludes a report by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).
More than 55 percent maintain severely restrictive, “red light” speech codes, according to the report. Another 39 percent have “yellow light” restrictions.
“The greatest threat to free speech on campus may now be the federal government,” said FIRE President Greg Lukianoff. Federal efforts to end “sexual harassment on campus are leading a number of universities to adopt flatly unconstitutional speech policies.”
