Hi,

A letter sent by the school this week tells incoming freshmen that the university does not support "trigger warnings" as part of its commitment to freedom of expression.

(This comes from npr.org: University Of Chicago Tells Freshmen It Does Not Support 'Trigger Warnings' on August 26.)

I don't know what the 'as part of...' part modifies.
1. (as part of its commitment to freedom of expression), it does not support "trigger warnings"
or
2. it does not support ("trigger warnings" as part of its commitment to freedom of expression) ? This seems wrong because I think 'trigger warnings' does not belong to freedom of expression. But is it likely to be right from grammar angle?

Thanks in advance!
