Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania

Shippensburg, PA

Shippensburg University says, "The General Education Program is the university curriculum that is shared by all undergraduate students. Drawing on the liberal arts tradition, it provides a framework for lifelong learning and the development of skills necessary for career readiness and informed citizenship in a democratic society. Students are given the opportunity to develop the intellectual, personal, and social capabilities they need to thrive as effective citizens prepared to embark on a career immediately upon graduation or after advanced study."

FIRE Speech Code School Rating
If FIRE finds that a university’s policies do not seriously threaten campus expression, that college or university receives a green light rating. A green light rating does not necessarily indicate that a school actively supports free expression in practice; it simply means that the school’s written policies do not pose a serious threat to free speech.
