More than 380 scholars, writers, and concerned citizens have signed NAS’s petition for free speech protections in the Higher Education Act. And earlier this week, we headed to DC and presented our ideas to White House officials and to staff for ten members of Congress.

We believe that public universities must be held accountable when they violate the First Amendment. And we want private universities at the least to be transparent about their speech and association policies. If Congress isn’t willing to consider these basic reforms, then it shouldn’t reauthorize the Higher Education Act this year.
Join us on Friday as we discuss what we learned from our meetings in DC, and find out what you can do to make free speech a priority in the Higher Education Act.
