AUSTIN – Tomorrow, Dr. Tom Lindsay, the director of the Center for Higher Education at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, will testify before the Texas Senate Committee on State Affairs, which is holding a special hearing on campus free speech at Texas State University.

They are coming together out of the shared conviction that abuse of the First Amendment rights guaranteed to students and faculty violates not only the constitution but also the very reason for being of universities.”
