  • Top Reasons #SAPros Should be Tracking Broad Gun-Related Legislation

    Whether or not firearms are allowed on college campuses, students, staff, and faculty across the country are increasingly likely to be asked to consider or plan for gun-related violence. Gun-related violence in the United States is not, despite some claims, at the highest it has ever been, but it has been increasing over the last decade. Data from the Pew Research Center shows that 42% of Americans live in a household with a gun and that, whether someone personally owns a gun or not, US residents have broad exposure to them. At the state level, where most decisions about guns on campus are made, the gun lobby is noted for its tenacity, returning year after year to remove restrictions on when and where individuals may carry concealed weapons. Whether due to this concerted effort by the pro-gun lobby to systematically weaken state gun laws or not, a 2018 analysis conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research finds there is a positive correlation between more permissive gun regulation and violent crime. Therefore, whether you support concealed carry on college campuses or not, changes in our broader gun laws will continue to impact students and student affairs professionals. This post by NASPA director of policy research and advocacy, Teri Lyn Hinds, describes key considerations for student affairs professionals and provides an overview of federal and state action related to guns that may impact college campuses.

  • Campus Free Speech: What #SAPros Need to Know About the Executive Order, State Legislation

    Free speech on college campuses is once again taking center stage in national headlines following President Trump’s Executive Order on Improving Free Inquiry, Transparency, and Accountability at Colleges and Universities, signed Thursday, March 21, 2019. Most, if not all, colleges and universities are already complying with their responsibilities to protect students’ expressive rights, utilizing appropriate content-neutral time, place, and manner guidelines. However, the threat of as-yet-unknown action by federal agencies that award significant research grant funds to institutions may result in a restriction, rather than an expansion, of intellectual diversity on college campuses. So far in 2019, NASPA's policy and advocacy team are tracking 37 pieces of state legislation related to free speech, of which 26 bills in 15 states would require institutions to designate all outside areas of campus as traditional public forums or otherwise prohibit the designation of free speech zones. Some include additional restrictions related to institutions’ ability to disinvite speakers, assess fees for anticipated security related to possible protest activity, or prohibit campus leaders from speaking on “public policy controversies of the day”. Student affairs professionals are encouraged to reach out to legislators to express their concerns with legislation under consideration that would limit the time or ability of institutions to ensure campus safety.
