Remember Melissa Click? She's the communications professor infamously captured on video shouting, “Hey, who wants to help me get this reporter out of here! I need some muscle over here!” Intolerance like Click's on campus cannot stand. CFACT is getting behind the Chicago declaration of student rights and using our Collegians network to bring it to students, faculty, administrators, trustees and alumni everywhere.
CFACT urges all institutions of higher learning to adopt a version of the following remarkable policy on free expression, or a similar version guaranteeing as powerful a protection of individual freedom or greater. Forward a copy of the model declaration to the colleges and universities in your life.
"The University has a solemn responsibility not only to promote a lively and fearless freedom of debate and deliberation, but also to protect that freedom when others attempt to restrict it." Read the statement Princeton and the University of Chicago adopted to abandon political correctness and promote and defend free thought and speech. Forward it to your alma mater.
