* Understanding Free Speech on a College Campus
Tuesday, December 6, 9:00 to 11:00a.m. / Sage 2030
Presented by Chelsee Bente, CI Student Conduct Administrator & Claire Langeveldt, CI Student Conduct Specialist

Is hate speech protected? What are fighting words? What’s the difference between libel and slander? Are student’s comments protected or unprotected speech in a classroom? In an office environment?

The right to free speech is a fundamental value of our democracy and an important pillar on our college campuses. Across the country we are seeing waves of protests, demonstrations, and discourse on our college campuses initiated by students that address important issues surrounding race, class, gender, sexual orientation, the 2016 election, guns on campus and more.

Join the Student Conduct and Community Responsibility staff for a workshop to learn how educators and staff can navigate these complexities when responding to free speech on college campuses.
-Attendees will examine protected and unprotected speech on college campuses
-Attendees will analyze current issues involving free speech issues
-Attendees will learn to interpret and apply forum analysis and to issues of free speech
