AAUP Report: Campus Free-Speech Legislation: History, Progress, and Problems


AAUP has released a detailed report on “Campus Free Speech” legislation, of the kind that North Carolina’s legislature adopted in summer 2017 and is now imposed on University of North Carolina campuses.

The report begins:

“Claiming that free speech is “dying” on American campuses, a conservative think tank has led an effort to push states to adopt a model bill that, in the name of defending campus free speech, risks undermining it. This report seeks to understand the context and content of the “campus free-speech” movement, to track its influence within state legislatures, and to draw some conclusions concerning the best ways to respond to it.”

The full report is available here:
