Alumni Rising

July 6, 2023

The Alumni Free Speech Alliance (AFSA) brings together alumni groups that have a focus on supporting free speech, academic freedom, and viewpoint diversity at their colleges and universities. These principles are critical to the advancement of knowledge and to the very concept of an academic institution. Yet, free speech is increasingly under attack. To preserve the principles and purpose of their institutions, alumni must become involved to make the case for free speech and academic freedom and to provide support for faculty and students who speak up on their campuses.


Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.
