FIRE Speech Rating

Washington State University earns a Yellow speech code rating from the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE).

A yellow light institution maintains policies that could be interpreted to suppress protected speech or policies that, while clearly restricting freedom of speech, restrict relatively narrow categories of speech.

FIRE evaluates colleges and universities' "speech codes," or written free speech policies, for how well they protect students' freedom of speech. ACTA believes an institution's commitment to free expression correlates with its commitment to academic excellence, facilitated through the free exchange of ideas.

Washington State University says, " The University Common Requirements help students acquire foundational skills and a broad knowledge of the world that complements their specific areas of study. Through this broad exposure to multiple disciplines, students develop intellectual and civic competencies, practical skills, and the ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings. WSU graduates are prepared to address diverse, complex issues for the benefit of themselves, their communities, their employers, and for society at large." [Source]
