Gambill’s free speech has been violated

TO THE EDITOR:

The University is beholden to the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately, our policies are written by overzealous administrators and bureaucrats, rather than constitutional lawyers.

The result is that several of our policies substantially restrict freedoms guaranteed to us by law. The case of Landen Gambill is one of these cases.

According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, “Gambill’s criticism of UNC … constitutes protected speech. Any punishment she may face solely as a result of this speech violates the First Amendment.”

Please understand what the law requires so we can avoid these situations in the future.
