I am pleased to see that the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has named Dartmouth one of the seven best colleges for free speech. FIRE President Greg Lukianoff says Dartmouth is “one of our more controversial choices,” apparently because of “controversies about governance” in recent years. We are of course familiar with those. But Dartmouth abolished its speech code in 2005, and that, together with the absence of incidents of suppression of free speech in recent years, put the college on the roll of honor, along with Arizona State, William & Mary, Penn, the University of Tennessee, Carnegie Mellon and the University of Virginia.
