Janet Napolitano: There's a Free Speech Problem On Campus

Janet Napolitano reports:
As president of the University of California system, I write to show how far we have moved from freedom of speech on campuses to freedom from speech. If it hurts, if it’s controversial, if it articulates an extreme point of view, then speech has become the new bĂȘte noire of the academy. Speakers are disinvited, faculty are vilified, and administrators like me are constantly asked to intervene.
Not a lot of free speech on American campuses.
