Free Speech on Campus: The 2018 Wade Clark Roof Human Rights Lecture with UC Irvine Chancellor Howard Gillman
Hardly a week goes by without another controversy over free speech on college campuses. On one side, there are increased demands to censor hateful, disrespectful, and bullying expression and to ensure an inclusive and nondiscriminatory learning environment. On the other side are traditional free speech advocates who charge that recent demands for censorship coddle students and threaten free inquiry.
