The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education released its list of the top 10 worst schools for free speech in 2016 in a blog post last week.
For the last five years, FIRE, whose stated mission is to “defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities,” has published these lists highlighting the colleges and universities in the U.S. that it deems to be the most hostile to free speech. Since its founding in 1999 by University of Pennsylvania professor Alan Charles Kors and Boston civil liberties attorney Harvey Silverglate, FIRE has fought to protect “freedom of speech, legal equality, due process, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience — the essential qualities of individual liberty and dignity” while enlightening “the public and communities of concerned Americans about the threats to these rights on our campuses and about the means to preserve them,” according to its website.
