Excerpt: Campuses across the UNC System do not always establish an atmosphere that promotes free expression, according to a recent report produced by UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC-Greensboro professors.

Eighteen percent of UNC-CH students reported that, among classes where politics came up more than "never," they had self-censored their material-related views more than once. Nearly double reported concerns that fellow students would have a lower opinion of them if they were to express those views.
