I just got back from the annual board of advisors meeting of The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. FIRE is a principled, effective organization that operates on a very modest budget (about $750K this year). Please give it your financial support.
One of FIRE's impressive recent initiatives is a series of guides to help college students know what their rights are and how to protect them. The series currently includes guides to religious liberty; to student fees, funding, and legal equality; to due process and fair procedure on campus; and to free speech on campus. In May, FIRE will publish its guide on first-year orientation and thought reform, which was the subject of Alan Kors's memorable cover story in my final issue as editor of Reason.
You can download the guides as .pdf files for free or order commercial-quality paperback copies for $3.95 each (free to students).
