Will Florida start surveying students on their perceived freedom of speech?

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, Florida’s legislature has approved a bill requiring their state’s public colleges to administer an annual survey designed to gauge student and staff perceptions regarding their own freedom of expression.

The takeaway? While many argue the bill is redundant to existing free speech provisions, would it be interesting to understand the difference between legal freedoms and perceived freedoms on our college campuses? Whether or not we’re creating beautiful places of self- and idea-exploration, or potentially a much narrower version of that? I guess we might find out.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
