In the spirit of the Virginia Founding Fathers, the Masion Cabinet was established to achieve the following goals:

1. Maximize transparency, open government, and accountability from the University Board of Visitors and Executive Leadership. 

2. Increase tolerance, academic freedom, and diversity of expression from and among students, faculty, staff and University leadership. 


The Madison Cabinet for Free Speech and Accountability is a group of alumni from James Madison University who are committed to promoting and safeguarding freedom of  expression, intellectual diversity, and academic freedom on campus. 

We ask for more transparency in the University's governance and protections for student and faculty expression. Through our combined efforts, we will elevate the time-honored traditions of American higher education at our alma mater, by promoting rigorous discourse, facilitating academic inquiry, and ensuring transparency from the Board of Visitors.
