Saint Louis University Threatens to Expel Student for Posting Flyers Promoting Conservative Speaker’s Event

Saint Louis University is threatening to expel or suspend a student for posting flyers advertising the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh’s off-campus speaking event, according to the Young America’s Foundation.

The student, James Dowling, was told in a Dec. 9 videoconference with school administrators that he could face expulsion for his “inappropriate conduct” and “failure to comply,” according to YAF.

Dowling, a member of the Saint Louis University College Republicans group, was putting up flyers advertising Walsh’s off-campus event on Dec. 1 when nearby SLU administrators, uncomfortable with the presence of SLU’s name on the same flyer as the SLU College Republicans, told him to take them all down, according to YAF.

Dowling reportedly offered to cross out the names on the flyers with a marker, but the administrators wouldn’t accept the compromise.

In a letter dated Dec. 9, the SLU Office of Student Responsibility and Community Standards sent Dowling a letter detailing his alleged breaches of SLU’s “Community Standards.” The letter also noted that Dowling would be required to attend a hearing for his “Suspendable Violations.”
