Supporting Free Speech for All on Campus

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Recent years have seen the values of free speech, diversity, and inclusion in tension with one another in higher education. But these principles can--and must--be harmonized, balanced, and upheld in tandem, for the benefit of the rising generation and the special role of the academy in our democracy. This presentation will draw on the nuanced history of free speech to present a vision of 'free speech for all', a belief in both upholding free speech and ensuring that people from all backgrounds have opportunities to speak, be heard, and be respected. The presentation will touch on practical tips for faculty and administrators who confront challenges surrounding speech on campus, in part drawing on PEN America's Campus Free Speech Guide and its years of experience partnering with and advising colleges on these issues around the country. Speaker: Jonathan Friedman, Ph.D., is the director of free expression and education at PEN America, where he oversees advocacy, analysis, and outreach to educational communities and academic…

This free workshop will help you become more aware of your "inner polarizer" and learn a useful method for disagreeing with others About this Event Much of today’s polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side.

This is a two-part workshop. Part one consists of a 40…
