College or University With a Thesis

Excerpt from Thesis :

The types of speech prohibited by the Emory speech code are not those pertaining to rational discourse, but the type of speech designed to make students feel inferior and unsafe while they pursue a (very expensive and time-consuming) education. The student's right to an education cannot be 'trumped' by another student's right to say hateful things designed to make another student feel as if he or she has no right to attend class, to be on campus, or to speak his or her own opinion.

Of course, some may disagree with Emory's educational philosophy. Those who do are free to seek their higher education elsewhere: "Court rulings have prohibited public (state-run) colleges and universities from enacting codes that restrict the constitutional right to free speech based on content. Private institutions, in contrast, are not subject to these decisions. Emory, for example, as a private university, can ignore public law rulings and draft whatever hate speech policy it chooses" (Uelmen 1992).
