Regents working on free speech policy

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – The South Dakota Board of Regents is now working under a mandate passed by the legislature to create a free speech policy for the six universities.

Regents President Kevin Schieffer says they will have a policy in place.

Schieffer says the universities should be centers of learning, not politics.

Schieffer says there is a fine line in defining free speech.

The law requires the Regents to report on free speech progress and issues at the end of each year.
