Pre-Conference Institute: Creating Campuses for All Voices Presented in partnership with PEN America
In recent years, colleges and universities have become proxies for a set of national conflicts writ large over free speech, diversity, equity, and inclusion. How should campus actors make sense of these challenges? How can they balance obligations to these precepts? This one-day institute, organized by PEN America, will provide crucial context for this national debate, as well as practical and principled guidance for faculty, administrators, and campus leaders. Through interactive workshops and symposia, the institute will equip attendees with guidance for balancing free speech and inclusion across a range of scenarios, from protests and invited speakers to ideological clashes in the classroom.
