Cancel culture hits hardest at nation’s highest-ranked colleges

Over the past six years, one of the worst places to be, in terms of getting targeted, punished or canceled for what you say, has been on campus at an elite American college.

A recent survey by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) found since 2015, Stanford University has had the most incidents of scholars being targeted by “triggered” complainants, with 18 reported on the school’s California campus, twice as many as reported at Harvard, UCLA and Georgetown.

All told, the Ivy League accounted for half of the six worst campuses for scholar targeting, as the University of Pennsylvania and Yale ranked next on the list, according to FIRE’s tally of more than 400 targeting incidents that have occurred since 2015.
