Some good news: the OfS is looking a lot more proactive

In the throes of what at times feels a long and [unrewarding] slog, it is wonderful to see some good news. The Office for Students issued an extraordinarily positive statement about free speech shortly before Christmas. It signals a much more proactive approach to pushing universities to improve free speech protection. We are very cautious about talk of the tide turning, but this is a very good sign.
