This workshop will address the pressing issues of free speech and academic freedom from the viewpoint of those most directly affected: students and professors. Panelists will share their personal experiences with and observations of the suppression of free speech on campus. They will also discuss ideas and potential policy solutions for how to guide universities toward becoming places where freedom of speech is encouraged and protected.
