Harvard ranked as America’s worst college for free speech

  • Harvard University has been ranked as the worst college for free speech in the US, according to a survey of over 55,000 students. The rankings, based on student responses and how schools responded to deplatforming attempts, positioned Harvard at the bottom. Self-censorship was found to be prevalent, with 26% of students censoring themselves in conversations and 25% more likely to self-censor compared to when they started college.
  • The survey also revealed that significant percentages of students opposed allowing conservative and liberal speakers on campus. Difficult topics to discuss on campus included abortion, gun control, racial inequality, and transgender rights.
  • The University of New Hampshire ranked third overall in the country for free speech, while Harvard, along with other influential schools like Georgetown, Northwestern, and Dartmouth, performed poorly. Several Massachusetts colleges and universities were also assessed, with Worcester Polytechnic Institute ranking the highest.
