Abstract

This critical literature review discusses how U.S. law has addressed the issue of free speech on college campuses. Ultimately, colleges and universities are tasked with balancing First Amendment rights with the safety of their students, faculty, staff, and campus members. In the future, more legislation should continue to inform how colleges and universities draft hate and bias policies and campus speech policies, meant to balance First Amendment rights and the aforementioned safety of educational stakeholders and the general public.

Keywords: Higher Education, Colleges, Universities, Free Speech, First Amendment, Hate and Bias
