Report finds UNC schools restrict speech
The Chronicle (Duke Univ.)
A report released Tuesday says some campuses in the University of North Carolina system impose unconstitutional limits on freedom of speech.
The report cited examples such as Fayetteville State University’s ban on vulgar language and UNC Greensboro’s prohibition on “disrespect for persons.”
The report suggested the UNC system pay more attention to First Amendment freedoms. It was issued by the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.
