Alumni Free Speech Alliance


The Alumni Free Speech Alliance brings together alumni groups that have a focus on supporting free speech, academic freedom, and viewpoint diversity at their colleges and universities.

Members of the Alliance believe that free speech, academic freedom, and viewpoint diversity are critical to the advancement of knowledge and to the very concept of a university. Yet surveys show most students at the colleges and universities have little understanding of these principles.

Poll: Should College Campuses Use AI to Monitor & Regulate Speech?

Welcome to our first poll on the effects of AI on free speech on college campuses.

Student protesting using AI to control free speech

As technology advances, there is an ongoing debate about the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in regulating speech on campuses.

On the one hand, proponents argue that AI-powered systems can help create a safe and inclusive environment by monitoring and controlling speech that may promote hate speech or discrimination.

On the other hand, critics express concerns about the potential limitations on free expression and the possibility of censorship and bias.

We invite you to participate in this poll to voice your opinion on whether college campuses should use AI to monitor and regulate speech, even if it potentially limits free expression. Let’s delve into the discussion and explore the different perspectives surrounding this complex issue. Remember to engage in respectful and thoughtful dialogue as we navigate this controversial topic.
