Radford University Earns Green Light for Free Speech from FIRE


Radford University is the latest school to receive a rare “green light” rating from the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE). Overall green light ratings are reserved for institutions with no written policies that seriously threaten student speech. Radford is one of only four schools in Virginia, and one of only 63 nationwide, that earn this rating. 

“It is critical for Radford University to be a place where everyone is welcome, and where individuals of all beliefs, backgrounds, and perspectives can have open dialogue about the issues of our world,” said President Bret Danilowicz. “We are proud to work alongside FIRE to advance Radford’s commitment to freedom of expression and to ensure that our community embraces the benefits of critical inquiry and meaningful debate.”
