Event Details

Free Speech on Campus: Book Discussion with the Authors

UC Irvine Chancellor Howard Gillman & Dean of UC Berkeley Law School Erwin Chemerinsky

Can free speech coexist with an inclusive campus environment?

Hardly a week goes by without another controversy over free speech on college campuses – and too often from extremist elements in society coming to our 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.

Constitutional scholars Chancellor Howard Gillman and Dean Erwin Chemerinsky will

  • elucidate the importance of free speech on campus,
  • offers clear prescriptions for what colleges can and can’t do when dealing with free speech controversies,
  • and share their insights to how and why campuses must provide supportive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body while at the same time can never restrict the expression of ideas.

Co-sponsored with Merage JCC of Orange County and ADL Orange County/Long Beach
