Virtual Event: Students and Freedom of Expression on Campus – Jan 25

Posted by Knight Foundation on January 25, 2022

Please join us on Tuesday, January 25 at 2 p.m. ET, for a robust virtual discussion on campus free speech hosted by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Today’s students are challenging free-speech norms and are more likely than older generations to support restrictions that limit offensive speech. What’s more, the rise of social media, new sexual-harassment policies, and demands for more racial diversity and inclusiveness have sometimes complicated free expression on campus. In this environment, how can colleges promote open inquiry and discussion while balancing changing attitudes?

The panel will include Michael S. Roth, president of Wesleyan University, and other experts on the campus speech debate. We’ll break down a new Knight-Ipsos report we’re releasing that morning on how American college students’ views of free speech are changing in a post-2020 world.
