MORE ON EMORY: Emory President Chalks Pro-Speech Message After Trump Controversy as Students, Alumni Urge More Action.

Emory University President James Wagner has expressed his support of free speech —in chalk— following the controversy over chalk messages written on campus last week in support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

President Wagner’s supportive message comes after students from Emory’s Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) chapter and a separate, non-partisan coalition of Emory alumni began parallel initiatives asking Emory to overhaul the university’s restrictive speech codes and officially commit to protecting free expression on campus.

Wagner visited a YAL campus event last Friday, talked to the students, and even added his own sidewalk chalk message to the array of student chalkings, reading: “EMORY STANDS FOR FREE EXPRESSION!”

Well, that’s nice to hear.
