As an alumnus of Iowa State, I am gratified to learn that Iowa State's speech code is being challenged by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. However, I was distressed to learn that ISU had such a code in the first place.
As the foundation has repeatedly pointed out, such codes consistently have been ruled unconstitutional by the federal courts. The college will lose this one — it doesn't stand a chance. It needs to throw in the towel now rather than costing Iowa taxpayers and donors to the university the cost of a court fight.
Until Iowa State does repeal its speech code, it need not bother this graduate with appeals for money.
