The Chronicle of Higher Ed

A watchdog group for free speech on campuses is stepping up its efforts to eradicate student-conduct codes and other campus policies that it says unconstitutionally restrict students’ and faculty members’ rights to freedom of expression.
At a news conference here on Tuesday, the group, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, announced that it had coordinated the filing of four federal lawsuits that accuse colleges of using such policies to shut down student activities and discourage freedom of speech.
The institutions named in the lawsuits are Citrus College, in California, and Chicago State, Iowa State, and Ohio Universities.
