    Two Catholic universities have some of the worst climates for free speech in the United States, according to a recently released report that analyzed more than 250 campuses, most of which continue to maintain lackluster free speech protections. The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, formerly the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, released its 2024 College Free Speech Rankings on Wednesday.The research is based on interviews with 55,102 students from 254 colleges and universities conducted between Jan. 13 and June 23. The margin of error for the overall undergraduate respondents is +/- 1 percentage point, while the margin of...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci has landed a job at Georgetown University where he will serve as a “distinguished university professor” in the school’s infectious disease division. “We are deeply honored to welcome Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, a dedicated public servant, humanitarian and visionary global health leader, to Georgetown,” Georgetown President John J. DeGioia said on Monday. “Dr. Fauci has embodied the Jesuit value of being in service to others throughout his career, and we are grateful to have his expertise, strong leadership and commitment to guiding the next generation of leaders to meet the pressing issues of our time.” Fauci, 82,...
  • Georgetown Opens First-of-Its-Kind Mosque on a U.S. College Campus

    Every day, Tabshir Forkan (C’24) walks to Georgetown’s masjid, or mosque, on campus for its daily prayer services. He steps into the sunlit, open worship space to pray. Afterward, he often finds himself in the masjid’s community space, attending spiritual discussions and dinners, studying, meeting with friends. “It’s a space I feel myself drawn to,” he says. “I can’t seem to stay away.” In spending time at the masjid, Forkan has felt his Islamic faith deepen — something he had worried about in leaving his Muslim community and masjid back home for a Catholic, Jesuit university, and forging his own...
  • What Does It Take to Really Protect Campus Free Speech? Policy adoptions are useless without enforcement mechanisms.

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | March 29, 2023 | John Hasnas
    I read with interest and trepidation the Martin Center’s March 16 article “Davidson College Affirms Free Speech,” which noted that Davidson had adopted a version of the Chicago Principles as its new speech policy. My interest came from the recognition that the college had made an abstract commitment to preserving freedom of speech on campus. My trepidation came from the tone of celebration the article embodied—the implication that adopting the new policy would actually protect unpopular speech. There is an old saying that it is good to learn from experience but better to learn from someone else’s experience. In the...

    At Georgetown, former Speaker Pelosi talks women priests, Archbishop CordileoneFormer U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told students at Georgetown University on March 23 that, growing up, she was more attracted to being a priest than being a Catholic sister because of the priest's ability to celebrate Mass."Turning bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ, that is real power," she said."Maybe one day women will be able to do that as well," Pelosi said, expressing hope that Pope Francis would act on women's ordination.Pelosi spoke to Rev.

    Georgetown University is set to require “social justice” courses on the school’s history of racism and slavery for its undergraduate students, starting next semester. A subcommittee consisting of Georgetown students and faculty members that was tasked with redesigning the university’s “Engaging Diversity” core curriculum component recently announced the new “Pathways to Social Justice,” which forces students to take a number of courses surrounding diversity concepts, according to a report by Campus Reform. One of the courses included in the Pathways to Social Justice curriculum includes a class, titled, “University Seminar in Race, Power, and Justice at Georgetown,” according to the...

    A doctor violated the law by administering COVID-19 vaccines to children without consent, according to a new lawsuit. Dr. Janine Rethy, chief of community pediatrics at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, is being accused of holding two children in a room until she convinced them to get a COVID-19 vaccine. The minors are both children of NaTonya McNeil, a Washington resident who brought the suit in D.C. Superior Court. “Ms. McNeil’s two minor children were held in a room by Defendant until she overcame their will and forcibly vaccinated them while physically preventing them from consulting with their mother, who was...

    Just The News ^ | 02/05/2023 | Greg Piper
    When Ilya Shapiro attempted to discuss "all or nothing battles" for Supreme Court nominations 11 months ago at the invitation of a Federalist Society chapter, it wasn't just a university-mandated mask inhibiting the libertarian legal scholar's speech. Student activists at the University of California College of Law, then known as UC Hastings, repeatedly shouted down Shapiro for his quickly removed "lesser black woman" tweet criticizing President Biden's black women-only SCOTUS nomination promise. The tweet had already gotten him suspended by Georgetown's law school near Capitol Hill in D.C. Shapiro would resign shortly after a four-month investigation cleared him on the...

    Georgetown lecture slides describe puberty blockers as ‘fully reversible’Georgetown University’s School of Medicine is teaching its students to administer puberty blockers and hormone therapy to minors, an investigation by The Spectator reveals. Medical students were told in a 2021 pre-clinical course that the “only way to help” many transgender people is to “‘fix’ their bodies” through medical intervention. The course also falsely claimed that puberty blockers are “fully reversible.” Georgetown University did not return a request for comment. First year medical students at Georgetown are required to take a course on Human Sexuality, which is part of a foundational block...

    NORTH BETHESDA, Maryland — For the past two and one-half years as he helped lead the nation’s efforts to confront the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci has become became a familiar face to Americans. He’s usually speaking at White House press briefings or in TV appearances to urge people to take safety measures like wearing face masks when appropriate and to get the COVID-19 vaccination and booster shot to protect themselves and others against the spread of the virus. On Sept. 18, Fauci appeared in a different setting, the Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel at Georgetown Preparatory School in the...
  • Special delivery for Joe? Plane used by Florida Gov. DeSantis to send 50 migrants to Martha's Vineyard is now heading to Delaware airport near Biden's two homes!

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ plane he used to send 50 migrants to affluent Martha’s Vineyard is on the move again – heading for President Biden’s Rehoboth home in Delaware. DeSantis last week sparked a spectacular escalation in the ongoing immigration war between the Republican GOP’s in charge of the border states and Democrat officials in so-called ‘sanctuary cities’. It now appears that he is sending the Ultimate Air Shuttle to Georgetown, which will touch down at around 1.30pm. The plane had started its journey from Longview, in Texas, before heading to San Antonio, and then Crestview, in Florida. An hour...

    A Georgetown University law professor says Americans are “slaves” to the U.S. Constitution as their adherence to that document — written by a “tiny group of white slave-owning men” — has turned the country into a “war zone.” Rosa Brooks made the comparison yesterday on MSNBC’s Joy Reid show and highlighted the recent mass shooting in Highland Park, Illinois. “[T]here are people all over the world who have lived during armed conflicts, and when does the mortar fall on your house, when does the soldier or the tank come down the street and just kill you,” Brooks said. “We are...

[Caption] Erdoan Shipoli (l) and John Esposito (r) of Georgetown Univ. use their positions to whitewash Islamism and attack Western civilization. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was former President George W. Bush's "teacher at Yale," stated Erdoan A. Shipoli at an April 27 Georgetown University webinar. While Rice was indeed a child prodigy on the piano, her intellectual prowess was not quite so grand as to land her an Ivy League teaching position as an adolescent. Born in 1954, she was only...

    Tucker Carlson and his wife were looking to get their son a leg up in his college application to Georgetown University when they turned to a well-connected Washington friend who had an even better-connected father. “I realize you don’t really know Buckley,” Susie Carlson wrote via email in 2014 to Hunter Biden, a Georgetown graduate and the son of the then-vice president. “Maybe you could meet or speak to him and he could send you a very brief resume with his interests and grades attached.” Tucker Carlson offered that his son was a good squash player and an excellent fly...

    President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson is involved in an anti-racist agreement that all parents of children at Georgetown Day School (GDS) must sign for enrollment, according to documents obtained by Breitbart News. Jackson has been a board of trustees member at GDS since 2019 and a member of the Georgetown Day School community for about a decade. While Jackson denied to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is taught at the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS)-affiliated GDS during last week’s Senate confirmation hearing, the school demands that all parents sign a form called...

    Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's membership in a Harvard University student group that once invited a controversial anti-Semitic speaker to campus has surfaced ahead of her confirmation hearings later this month. In 1992, Jackson was a member of the Harvard Black Students Association when they invited Leonard Jeffries, a professor known for making anti-Semitic remarks, to speak at the university, Fox News reports. According to the Anti-Defamation League, Jeffries first gained public attention in 1991, “when the New York Post published an account of a vitriolic anti-Semitic and racist speech he made on July 20 at the Empire...

    To my family, the ability to speak freely and without fear is worth dying for. My parents’ only hope was to raise their children in a land that would not oppress them for daring to speak out, and to their horror, their children’s First Amendment right to freedom of speech is in grave danger. In the 1970s, my father fled Romania, was thrown into a communist labor camp in Yugoslavia, beaten by guards there, and starved. He eventually got out, made his way to Austria, and applied for asylum to the United States. It was a difficult journey, but if...

    Georgetown University on Thursday condemned one of its own law professors for his "appalling" criticism of President Joe Biden's pledge to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. In an email to the entire law school, William Treanor, dean of the law school, said faculty member Ilya Shapiro's comments regarding Biden's pledge to base his nomination decision on race were "at odds with everything" the law school stands for and were "damaging to the culture of equity and inclusion that Georgetown Law is building every day." Treanor criticized Shapiro for using "demeaning language" that he characterized as "appalling." Shapiro,...
