Issues & Ideas Forum - "Fighting for Free Speech on Michigan University Campuses" (June 8, 2017)

Some institutions of higher education have cracked down on free speech. Even in Michigan, universities have speech codes that restrict students’ speech, campus groups have prevented speakers from delivering talks and administrators have stopped individuals from handing out certain literature.

But there has been pushback. Student groups are organizing and responding to these limits on speech. Lawmakers have introduced bills that would restrict on public universities’ ability to infringe on student speech.

This issue raises an important questions that needs consideration: What is the proper way for the state to regulate or protect free speech at publicly funded institutions of higher education?
