One of the central tensions facing colleges today is balancing free speech rights with the need for respect and inclusion in a campus community. This roundtable features three leading scholars of hate crime, the First Amendment, and law and politics as they discuss their diverse perspectives on rights and responsibilities in a campus community, with the goal of better understanding how to balance this delicate tension.
The panel will include:
- Lucy Dalglish, Dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland
- Jeannine Bell, Richard S. Melvin Professor of Law at Indiana University Bloomington
- Ryan Owens, Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin – Madison
The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
