Speaking Freely on Freedom of Expression
Wichita State University is proud to host a virtual educational panel on the status of free speech at public universities. Among the topics of discussion will be the responsibility of universities to provide a forum for differing points of view; the role of academic freedom in relationship to free speech; higher education’s duty to teach its students the lessons of responsibility that accompany the privilege of free speech; and examples of how universities and colleges live in an environment where free speech is valued and supported.
