Ron DeSantis signed legislation that requires the public universities to survey students and staff about their beliefs.
The surveys purportedly seek to determine the state of "intellectual diversity" on campuses.
Ron DeSantis, a Republican, signed legislation on Tuesday that will require the state's public colleges and universities to survey students, professors, and staff about their political views in an effort to crack down on intellectual "indoctrination" on campus.
DeSantis, a potential 2024 presidential contender who's closely aligned with former President Donald Trump, threatened to cut funding from state universities if he determines they don't sufficiently promote "intellectual diversity."
The law, which is effective July 1, demands Florida's students "be shown diverse ideas and opinions, including those that they may disagree with or find uncomfortable."
