The Future of Free Speech on Campus

megaphone


Free speech and open inquiry on campus have been critical components of social change throughout American history. 

In recent years, college campuses have been forced to examine issues related to campus speech and its far-reaching implications. Administrators seek to find a stable policy that honors the traditions of academic freedom as well as the laws protecting free speech.

This panel will deliberate about these issues and the limits of campus expression.
