College Students’ Support for Free Speech is Slipping, According to Gallup and Knight

According to a new poll from Gallup and the Knight Foundation, college students are increasingly reporting that their campus climates keep people from sharing their views, among other findings. As Niraj Chokshi writes for the New York Times, “Students may struggle to balance free speech and inclusivity in the abstract, but they overwhelmingly and broadly prefer a learning environment that is open and permits offensive speech to one that is positive and limits it. Still, they increasingly believe that speech is being stifled. Last year, 61 percent said that their campus climate deterred speech, up from 54 percent in 2016.”
