Foundation for Individual Rights in Education Annual Report, 2010
Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (NJ1)
This paper presents the annual report of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for 2010. FIRE's approach in 2010 was centered on altering the incentive structure for universities by using both "carrots" and "sticks" to produce positive reforms and long-term results. These efforts gained significant force in September, when FIRE won a federal civil rights lawsuit through its Legal Network against a former university president on behalf of a student whose First Amendment rights were grossly violated. Throughout 2010, FIRE reminded administrators of their responsibility to respect freedom of expression and to eliminate the culture of censorship that has long prevailed on campus. As FIRE look ahead, it will use all of the tactics and technology at its disposal to stay one step ahead of campus censors. This paper reports updates on FIRE's various projects including: (1) Individual Rights Defense Program; (2) Major Defense Campaigns of 2010; (3) Policy Reform Project; (4) Legal Transformation Project; (5) Campus Freedom Network; (6) Individual Rights Education Program; and (7) Public Awareness Project.
