Four principles for freedom of speech of campus

Adrienne Stone writes in The Conversation:

It goes without saying – or at least it ought to – that freedom of speech should be a core value of universities. …

Because of this responsibility, universities should be guided by four fundamental free speech principles.

  1. Unorthodox ideas should be welcomed and offensive ideas must be tolerated

  2. Protest is crucial to the proper exercise of free speech rights on campus and should be permitted and facilitated

  3. The university must protect the pursuit of knowledge

  4. The university’s intellectual climate must be inclusive

They seem like good principles. Why not have a charter like this here.
