This is an outstanding video summarizing The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education‘s (FIRE) fight against a freshman sociopolitical indoctrination program at the University of Delaware. While classroom indoctrination by Professors is routinely scrutinized, this particular case is an example of the damage done that can be done by rogue administrators.
FIRE is an excellent organization whose mission is
… to defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, legal equality, due process, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience—the essential qualities of individual liberty and dignity. FIRE’s core mission is to protect the unprotected and to educate the public and communities of concerned Americans about the threats to these rights on our campuses and about the means to preserve them.
