“Today, I am proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research funds.”
“An executive order is unnecessary as public research universities are already bound by the First Amendment, which they deeply respect and honor. It is core to their academic mission.”
“For the president to stop campuses from making their own choices about speakers would infringe on their academic freedom, both with respect to determining the truth according to scholarly standards and creating an atmosphere of civility.”
Do you support an order requiring free speech on college campuses? Take action and tell your reps, then share your thoughts below.
