Day of Dialogue Discussion - The Role of Free Speech Today

Free speech and civility have taken on new dimensions in light of the current polarization and extremism gripping our country. What does it mean for a university to promote free speech when more groups are openly espousing views that denigrate specific identity groups and promote exclusion? This session will explore what it means to promote civic education in this context.
Moderator: Mark Chupp
