Free Speech on Campus Panel at Illini Union with Panelist Jim Anderson
The First Amendment says that government “shall make no law . . .
abridging the freedom of speech.” How do those words apply in a public
university where the robust exchange of ideas is cherished but where some
kinds of speech collide with other important goals and values?
Join a panel of experts to learn what the First Amendment actually protects
on campus—and what it doesn’t—and to hear diverse perspectives on
real-world cases involving conflicts over freedom of speech.
