Should CU Allow White Supremacist Students On Campus?

A controversy at CU Boulder has sparked debate over freedom of speech and institutional responsibility. It started when, a few weeks back, flyers began to appear across campus with the picture of a male, first-year student who lived in one of the school’s dorms. At the top of the poster was the headline, “A Nazi activist lives on campus.”

The CU Independent reported on the story and found that CU Boulder’s administrators had known of the student’s white supremacist ties before he stepped foot on campus this fall. 

According to the reports, administrators declined to comment on the case. As the story spread, they announced the student was no longer enrolled at CU. 

KGNU’s Alexis Kenyon spoke with Henry Larson, the editor-in-chief of CU Independent, who broke the story last week.
