University president resigns rather than support GOP-backed free speech survey

University of Wisconsin System delays survey until fall 2022 as free speech remains controversial in higher ed

University of Wisconsin Whitewater’s interim President James Henderson resigned earlier this month after the University of Wisconsin System announced that it would offer students a campus free speech survey.

Henderson cited a lack of support from the UW system in his decision.

“I felt like I could not encourage candidates to apply for the chancellor job because of what I consider to be a lack of support from UW System leadership,” he told the Wisconsin State Journal. “I thought chancellors had a role and a collaborative process in making decisions with the System, and I feel that was not honored.”
