Transylvania University urged to ditch policy that makes students ‘jump through bureaucratic hoops.’
9 in 10 students oppose speech-permission requirement
The campus speech policies at Transylvania University are getting unwanted national attention at a time of transition for Kentucky’s oldest university.
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education warned the administration earlier this month that its policies promote “viewpoint-based decision-making” and enact prior restraints on student speech, in violation of its other promises to students.
The private university has a single “free speech zone,” and students must fill out paperwork and get approval before using it.
The precipitating event for FIRE’s involvement was the administration’s shutdown of a Young Americans for Freedom free-speech tabling event, a day after it allowed the Young Democratic Socialists of America to table for their own causes.
Alex Drury, chairman of Transylvania’s YAF chapter, told The College Fix that theirs is the “only Conservative/Libertarian group on campus.”
