Finally, something that will make colleges care about free speech on campus:

Gallup finds that graduates’ perception of inclusivity on campus is linked to their attitude toward their alma mater. Graduates who strongly agree that they felt very comfortable sharing ideas or opinions in class that were probably only held by a minority of people are more than twice as likely as those who do not strongly agree to be emotionally attached to their university. Importantly for universities and advancement offices in particular, graduates who are emotionally attached to their alma mater are more likely to be active alumni and donate back to their school.
