Foundation for Individual Rights in Education: Press Release:
"The OCR statement is a vindication of the truth that no governmental regulation, law, or policy may override the First Amendment.
“For too long, colleges and universities have used OCR’s anti-harassment regulations as an excuse for passing restrictive speech codes and punishing students and faculty for ‘offensive’ speech,” said FIRE co-director and Boston attorney Harvey A. Silverglate. “By issuing this letter, OCR has clarified once and for all that OCR regulations cannot and do not trump the First Amendment.”"

While a nice thought, this will change very little. I've seen schools censor their students because of a political bias and not even think twice about it. This will not change the type of person making those types of decisions at leading Universities.
