Bring the FSF to your campus!

by libby Contributions Published on Sep 05, 2014 03:54 PM
The Free Software Foundation is going back to school. We're planning a campus speaking tour and would love to come to your college or university.

Software freedom and learning go hand in hand. Textbooks should be DRM-free, readily shareable, and easy to check out from the library for as long as you need them. You should be able to use whatever free operating system you choose, not forced into a contract with Microsoft (as is the case at schools like Virginia Tech). Everyone studying computer science at the college level should be able to see and learn from the code that makes their software tick. Learning is a cooperative endeavor; the tools you use to learn should promote cooperation, not proprietize human knowledge.

We're on a mission to help students and other members of campus communities organize to make their schools free software friendly. Would you like us to come to your campus to speak to your class, meet with your student group, or give you tools to meet with your administrators? Email
