  3. Joining a national debate, tiny Eckerd College takes a big stand on campus free speech


    ST. PETERSBURG — When the Wesleyan campus newspaper ran an op-ed critical of the Black Lives Matter movement, outraged students petitioned to slash the paper's funding.

    Students celebrate after University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe's resignation in November 2015, following racial tensions at the school. Many students blocked members of the press covering the public event, saying the media was not invited and they needed a "safe space" to gather. Responding to this and other student efforts to censor information, Eckerd College has joined other colleges and universities in calling for a stronger commitment to free speech on campuses.
