SPJ leaders this week sent a letter to Quinnipiac President John l. Lahey expressing the organizations concerns. In part, the letter says, “We hope that you will realize that banning a student organization for actions that are not only legal but well-intentioned would send a message across the country that the University leadership does not support the principles of free speech , free press and free association that are outlined in the First Amendment.
