How to Think or What to Think?

A Case Study from Missouri for College Trustees
July 1, 2009

The second in ACTA's series of DVD trustee guides, this shows a key campus challenge in living color. How to Think or What to Think? tells the story of a Missouri student who was penalized for not signing an advocacy letter that conflicted with her conscience. After she filed a federal lawsuit, an outside review of the program in which she was enrolled found a "toxic" atmosphere rife with "bullying." The video highlights the university's constructive response and calls upon trustees across the country to take concrete steps to protect the free exchange of ideas. It can be viewed or purchased below.
