Policy Statement on Political Speech on Campus by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education

Updated policy statement on political speech on campus was released by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). The statement distinguishes between the political expression of student groups, faculty, and staff at both public and private universities on-campus and the prohibition against such expression by colleges and universities that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
