Challenges to Free Speech on University Campuses

Free speech is under attack in the very places—colleges and universities—where it is supposed to be most valued. Staunch support for free speech has become regarded by many on American (and European) campuses as, in and of itself, a proxy for racism, sexism, homophobia, white supremacy, and other similar evils. The challenge is that both sides of the debate have valid claims. The presentation will explore the battlelines and suggest how universities may respond to these seemingly diametrically-opposite, mutually exclusive, claims.
