Alumni from major colleges are withdrawing their financial support in an effort to put pressure on university leadership to encourage and protect free speech on campus, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Many alumni are pushing back against teaching they believe violates their own values, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Cornell graduate and California real estate developer, Carl Neuss, hesitated after the university asked him to make a seven-figure donation. Concerned with what he referred to as liberal indoctrination on campus, he began an organization called the Cornell Free Speech Alliance, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Several of these types of organizations have formed on campus. They are mostly driven by politically moderate or conservative alumni. They believe progressives have taken over colleges campuses and are squelching free speech, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Protecting free speech is cited as one of the main objectives of the alumni organizations.

“Robust debate and a discussion of all views remain hallmarks of the Cornell experience both in and out of the classroom,” Cornell’s vice president for university relations, Joel Malina, told the WSJ.

Founder of the Davidsonians for Freedom of Thought and Discourse, a similar group at Davidson College in North Carolina, John Craig, said that “this is a battle for our culture and, in many ways, for Western civilization.”
