Campuses are caught in a vortex between demands from some student and faculty members to bring controversial speakers to campus and demands from others to ensure a campus free of discrimination and hate speech. Campus leaders are forced to balance important values of academic freedom and the free flow of ideas, including intellectual dissent, against the possible harms – and cost – from speech and conduct that may endanger the community and compromise the commitment to an inclusive and positive learning environment. Is your institution prepared to protect expression – both financially and intellectually – while enforcing policies prohibiting harassment, discrimination and disruption? Gather your faculty, staff, administration and students to join in on this webinar that will explore 10 case studies of actual events on campuses in recent months involving controversial speakers, vigorous protests and in some cases violence. The case studies will be used to examine strategies for minimizing the risks of costly disruption, maintaining a positive learning climate, and engaging the campus in productive dialogue towards shared understanding of community, inclusion, expression and first amendment values. Join us on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 and in 90 minutes you will navigate the changing boundaries of speech on your campus, so you can spot a potential problem and de-escalate it before it becomes out of control.
