Discriminatory Treatment of Student Organizations at DePaul University
DePaul University discriminates against student organizations by forbidding students from organizing around certain viewpoints. Although DePaul promises to support "robust debate and exposure to differing points of view," DePaul manipulates its student organization policy to privilege its own favored points of view. After DePaul betrayed its own promises by choosing not to give equal treatment to Students for Cannabis Policy Reform, the group came to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help.
"DePaul University promises student groups freedom of expression, but instead delivers censorship," said FIRE President Greg Lukianoff. "If DePaul wants its guarantees of free inquiry and debate to be taken seriously, it should immediately stop tilting the playing field against certain ideas."
