NAS Delaware Head Jan Blits Keynotes Tomorrow at FIRE Conference

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is in the middle of a July 14-16 conference of its Campus Freedom Network (CFN), a network of college students and others supporting liberty in higher education. 

One of the keynote speakers is Jan Blits, the president of NAS's Delaware affiliate and a professor who exposed the University of Delaware's ideological residence life program in 2007.

Here is the announcement on CFN's conference page

UPDATE: FIRE is pleased to announce that Professor Jan Blits will give the closing keynote address at the 2011 CFN Conference. Jan H. Blits is a professor in the University Honors Faculty at the University of Delaware. He was this year's winner of the Jeane J. Kirkpatrick Academic Freedom Award, and in 2009 he received FIRE's own Prometheus Award for his efforts in ending the University of Delaware's appalling student indoctrination program.
