Student Speech Codes


Welcome to the Spotlight Speech Codes Database

An overwhelming majority of colleges and universities across the country deny students the rights they are granted under the First Amendment or institutional promises. Every year, FIRE reads through the rules governing student speech at more than 400 of our nation's biggest and most prestigious universities to document the institutions that ignore students' rights—or don't tell the truth about how they've taken them away. FIRE's Spotlight database will tell you if your school is one of them.

University of Maryland – College Park has been given the speech code rating Green. Green light institutions are those colleges and universities whose policies nominally protect free speech.

How's your school  doing?

Checked my Alma Mater. It's red.

Was it a California school?

I went to Princeton followed by Berkeley*, I didn't bother to check Berkeley.

* I showed up there right at the end of the "Summer of Love."
