Self-Censoring No Longer Required to Graduate at Iowa State University

Students at Iowa State University no longer have to worry about self-censorship in order to graduate, thanks to a lawsuit settled with the help of Alliance Defending Freedom:

Iowa State University threatened to put a “hold” on Robert Dunn’s graduation if he didn’t agree to abide by campus harassment policies that would punish him for constitutionally protected speech – acknowledged as such by the university.

Up against an embarrassing federal lawsuit by the Alliance Defending Freedom, the school opted to just change its policies.

In a settlement reached last month, Iowa State agreed to make further changes to the discrimination and harassment policy that it amended in December, two months after Dunn sued.
