‘A Crackdown on Free Speech at … Bucknell University?’
June 29, 2009
Check out FIRE Vice President Robert Shibley's latest column at Pajamas Media, where he takes on Bucknell University's suppression of a conservative student group. As Torch readers know, Bucknell has repeatedly defended its indefensible actions against the Bucknell University Conservatives Club (BUCC), but FIRE will keep the pressure on Bucknell until it lives up to its promises of freedom of speech to its students. And, as Robert points out, if Bucknell doesn't see the light, it will likely find itself part of our national campaign against "Red Alert" schools this fall. Bucknell does not want to be on that list.
