Excerpt: Two Ohio universities recently updated their free speech policies to remain compliant with new state standards that went into effect in July. The Board of Trustees for Ohio State University (OSU) and Ohio University (OU) adopted the individual policies during board meetings on Aug. 18.

Each policy reaffirms the universities’ commitment to respecting freedom of speech on campus, and provides a submission form where students and faculty can report violations of their speech on campus.
