A group says free speech is threatened on college campuses.
FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, rates colleges and universities based on how they restrict free speech.
Its mission is “to defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities.”
That includes protecting freedom of speech, freedom of the press, due process and more.
Shelby Emmett, Legal and Legislative Policy Advocate for FIRE, said she views the group as an “empowerment organization for students.”
