Protest Policy Project™

 

A National Study of Student Activism and campus Protest Policies

Funded by the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan , the Protest Policy Project™ (PPP) primarily aims to critically assess, analyze, and counter-legislate policies aimed punishing students participating in campus protest, particularly those engaged in direct resistance to the presence of hate speech on-campus. As a pilot investigation to be completed during the 2017-2018 academic year, the project is guided by the following research question:

How do contemporary state-level and institutional policies seeking to punish student protestors reflect the historical relationships of power between government, postsecondary institutions, and racially-minoritized populations in higher education?

We are in the process of recruiting participants for a national study on the punitive policies that target and criminalize youth activists and organizers in colleges and universities. Interested in participating?
