New Guides to Liberty

Yesterday, at a press conference in DC, FIRE celebrated the launch of the FIRE Guides to Student Rights on Campus. In attendance were luminaries from our Board of Advisors for the Guides series, ranging from former Attorney General Ed Meese to ACLU President Nadine Strossen. The five Guides — three of which have already been published — will instruct students on their rights, so they can stand up and defend them. As our president, Alan Charles Kors, is fond of saying, “a nation that does not educate in liberty will not long survive in liberty — and will not even know when it has lost it.”

The Guides are:

  • FIRE’s Guide to Religious Liberty on Campus
  • FIRE’s Guide to Student Fees, Funding, and Legal Equality on Campus
  • FIRE’s Guide to Due Process and Fair Procedure on Campus
  • FIRE’s Guide to Free Speech on Campus [forthcoming]
  • FIRE’s Guide to First-Year Orientation and Thought Reform on Campus [forthcoming]

    Students can download the Guides, in pdf format, at
