“ATTENTION FREE SPEECH BEING EXERCISED AHEAD[.] Topics could be upsetting to some.”
This is what we have come to? Warning signs for free speech? On an unrelated note, can I just say that ‘Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis’ is a ridiculously long and redundant name for a school.
Campus Reform reports:
Free speech warning sign displayed on Indiana campus
A free speech warning sign has been photographed on display, reportedly on Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis campus.
The sign warns students reading “ATTENTION FREE SPEECH BEING EXERCISED AHEAD[.] Topics could be upsetting to some.”
The sign also informs students of options to combat [sic]: “engage in a civil manner, decline respectfully and continue on, [or] alter your route now.”
The photo was shared by the Twitter account @libsoftiktok.
According to the University’s Equity and Inclusion Division, “Indiana University encourages discussion from a variety of different perspectives and viewpoints on all of its campuses… IU will protect, as far as possible, the physical safety of invited speakers, their supporters and protestors without regard to their views or the identity of their sponsors.”
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has issued Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis Yellow light rating for its restrictions on student speech.
“Yellow light colleges and universities are those institutions with at least one ambiguous policy that too easily encourages administrative abuse and arbitrary application” explains FIRE.
