Stockton University

Pomona, NJ

The Richard Stockton College says, 'General Studies courses are intended to enrich one's learning and to provide the general education foundation for Stockton students. These courses engage students in the broad areas of human knowledge (humanities, arts, social sciences, natural sciences, mathematics) and show the relationships among them. General Studies courses are about learning itself, about how people learn, and about what is important to learn. They often provide for the exploration of new fields, provoke and stimulate new thinking, test one's perspectives, and encourage experimentation. Students, with the help of a preceptor, are encouraged to select and plan courses of study that will broaden their overall perspectives, fill gaps in their knowledge, and enrich their personal lives by meeting educational needs important to all students.'

FIRE Speech Code School Rating
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.

Warning: FIRE believes that free speech is not only a moral imperative, but also an essential element of a college education. However, private universities, as private associations, possess their own right to free association, which allows them to prioritize other values above the right to free speech if they wish to do so. Therefore, when a private university clearly and consistently states that it holds a certain set of values above a commitment to freedom of speech, FIRE warns prospective students and faculty members of this fact. Six schools surveyed for this report meet these criteria.
