Office door postings by LSSU professor Dr. Richard Crandall are at the centre of the storm.
Crandall's conservative-leaning cartoons and photos have offended some and led university officials to consider reprimanding him.
According to an article on the Insider Higher Ed website, LSSUâ€™s administration believes such postings contribute â€śto a hostile environment.â€ť
As a result, school officials argue, the materials arenâ€™t protected by the First Amendmentâ€™s guaranteed right to freedom of speech.
Crandall and a supportive organization called the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) counter that other LSSU faculty post liberal-oriented content on their office doors with impunity.
