President Trump took historic action by signing an Executive Order that promotes and protects free speech on college campuses.

Under the President’s Executive Order, 12 grant-making agencies - including the Department of Education and Health and Human Services - will use their authority to ensure public institutions fulfill their obligation to uphold students’ First Amendment rights and private institutions live up to their own free speech standards.
