Interested in the issues surrounding free speech on campus? Join us tomorrow, June 14, at 3 p.m. for a Facebook Livestream of a symposium on current challenges to free speech on college campuses, the First Amendment’s role, and the future of the student press at American universities.
Co-hosted by the AAUP and the Newseum, the first panel on free speech will feature Newseum CEO Jeffrey Herbst, former president of Colgate University and author of a recent white paper, “Addressing the Real Crisis of Free Expression on Campus”; John K. Wilson, co-editor of the AAUP’s Academe Blog and author of Patriotic Correctness: Academic Freedom and Its Enemies; and Catherine Ross, professor of law at George Washington University and author of Lessons in Censorship: How Schools and Courts Subvert Students’ First Amendment Rights.
The second panel, on student press, will feature Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center; Henry Reichman, first vice president of the AAUP and chair of the AAUP’s Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure; and Courtney Rozen, editor-in-chief of The Eagle, the student newspaper at American University.
