Intellectual Freedom & Viewpoint Diversity

During the 2021 legislative session, House Bill 233 amended section (s.) 1001.03, Florida Statutes (F.S.), to require Florida College System (FCS) and State University System (SUS) institutions to conduct an annual assessment of intellectual freedom and viewpoint diversity.

To implement the provisions of s. 1001.03(19), F.S., two surveys were developed. The first survey was a 21-question multiple choice instrument whose audience was students. The second survey was a 24-question multiple choice instrument whose audience was employees. The two surveys were identical for the SUS and FCS.

In the following summary, the intellectual freedom and viewpoint diversity assessments for the FCS have been compiled.
