College presidents deflect responsibility for protests

If college presidents had done their job to ensure that their campuses allowed the free exchange of ideas, then states would not have had to step in (“The Gravest Threats to Campus Speech Come From States, Not Students” The New York Times, Apr. 21).  But that has clearly not been the case. 

As a result, they have no one but themselves to blame, even though they argue that state involvement is a repeat of historical threats to new ideas going back to Galileo in 1633.
