Free speech training announcement

February 1, 2022


Dear Iowa State Community,

Tomorrow, you will receive an email from Iowa Board of Regents President Michael Richards and Regent Greta Rouse with the subject line: Free Speech Training. The email will include a link to the Board’s free speech training program.

The 15-20 minute training is required by Iowa law for students, faculty and staff at all three Regents institutions, and must be completed by the end of the spring semester.

Free speech and the other protections of the First Amendment are core values of the university. They are important components of Iowa State’s welcoming campus, and how we live out our Principles of Community

Thank you, in advance, for completing the training, and best wishes for a successful spring semester.

Wendy Wintersteen
