Tensions over free speech have been intensifying on college campuses across the United States.
From campus speakers to what professors can and cannot say, more speech is coming under question, according to a new survey of more than 55,000 on 254 U.S. campuses.
The concerns aren’t just at private schools. Several public schools show up high on the list of campuses where free speech is coming into question.
Some of the schools ranked near the bottom of the list for protecting speech, like Harvard and Georgetown, are private institutions.
But the University of Pennsylvania and University of South Carolina are public schools ranked poorly for free speech.
