Michigan State University: Program of Thought Reform
- "Victory for Freedom of Conscience," May 3, 2007: After months of public pressure, Michigan State University (MSU) has ended its controversial Student Accountability in Community (SAC) program. FIRE urged MSU to end the SAC program because it forced students whose speech or behavior was deemed unacceptable to undergo ideological reeducation, or else face effective expulsion. If MSU decides to resuscitate this program of reeducation and compelled speech, FIRE will be there to make sure the university does not use it to deny students their constitutional rights.

- "Michigan State University Engaged in Thought Reform," December 14, 2006: Today, FIRE is publicly challenging Michigan State University to dismantle its Student Accountability in Community (SAC) program. The Orwellian SAC program, which forces students whose speech or behavior is deemed unacceptable by the university to undergo ideological reeducation at their own expense, is immoral, unconstitutional, and poses a profound threat to the freedom of speech and the right of private conscience of every Michigan State student.
