Is Campus Freedom of Speech Under Attack?
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (F.I.R.E.) surveyed the policies of 466 colleges for compliance with First Amendment standards and found 29% maintain at least one severely restrictive policy and 61% have either restrictions on a narrow area of expression, or vague policies that could be applied to restrict freedom of expression. Only 10% fulfill their student’s First Amendment rights.
That’s a failing grade by any standard! Want to help us raise the grade by returning and/or protecting student freedom of speech and expression on your campus? Please click on the Take me to the SAPIENT Being website button below to see how our S.A.P.I.E.N.T. Being campus organizations at 2-year & 4-year college campuses and high schools are going to make a difference and ensure this essential right is well preserved.
Learn how the Society Advancing Personal Intelligence & Enlightenment Now Together (SAPIENT) Being club, chapter and alliance campus organizations are a great venue for independent minded students who seek to rise above partisan politics and hear both sides of an issue, from any topic, without intimidation. It's also a perfect opportunity for liberal and conservative leaning students to come together and openly debate the hottest and most contentious issues facing America and the world today.
We accomplish this by following the highest standards of civil discourse and debating formats that respect each other’s ideas, premises and principles without attacking one’s character with malice and prejudice. This is freedom of speech and expression like it was meant to be. Join our cause and let’s make free speech again on campus. Sound acceptable?
If the answer is yes, that's a sapient decision! To learn more about the SAPIENT Being's vision, membership, and how to start a high school club, community college chapter or a university alliance, please follow the link below to our website and check out everything we have to offer like our free Organization Handbook for more details.
