Princeton’s U.S. News No. 1 ranking is an excellent achievement (On the Campus, October issue). Not so excellent is the 2022-23 College Free Speech Ranking [7] from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). Here, Princeton ranks No. 169 out of about 200 colleges. “The Overall Score combines seven unique dimensions to identify the top-ranked college campuses for student free speech and open inquiry,” FIRE explains. The No. 169 ranking speaks for itself.
