Welcome to the Quad.

A first-of-its-kind listing of organizations and influencers supporting free speech on college and university campuses in the United States and a resource for research and survey data on campus speech issues.

The Quad is a campus free speech directory that identifies established groups, organizations, influencers and journalists whose primary missions and responsibilities are championing free speech on college and university campuses in the United States. This non-partisan resource lists entities across the political spectrum. The Quad also aggregates survey and poll results relating to free speech on college campuses and curates research and scholarship pertaining to free speech on college campuses.

The directory is a project of the First Amendment Center of the Freedom Forum Institute, a neutral, non-partisan, non-profit organization that aims to educate Americans about how their First Amendment rights work, how they may be at risk, and how they can be protected. The research used to create the directory was conducted in partnership with the Fors Marsh Group (FMG). The Quad was made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and supported by the Charles Koch Foundation.
