The Academic Bill of Rights has become a reality. In Colorado, where
legislation was pending, the four presidents of the major universities
in that state asked state representative Shawn Mitchell to remove the
legislation so it could not voted on by the state house. The bill,
which was expected to pass, forced a commitment from the leaders of

of Rights will implemented at the university level, this has been the
goal for the Academic Bill of Rights all along. With the adoption of
the Academic Bill of Rights, we will now see an environment that
guarantees academic diversity on campuses. Students at Colorado
universities can now expect equity and fairness in the distribution of

speakers from a wide spectrum of political back grounds. The days of
indoctrination are coming to an end in Colorado. This is a foretaste of
what is to come.
