Understanding Free Speech on Campus

Freedom of speech is a hot topic on university campuses across the nation. 

Course Description

Why are so many controversial speakers and events happening in higher education?  To what degree are these speakers protected by the First Amendment?  Why does this controversy matter to public education?  How are staff impacted?

Come explore the answers to these and related questions with Carolyn Penny, Director of Campus Dialogue & Deliberation (CDD).  CDD works to support, create, convene, design, and facilitate civic engagement regarding issues that are important to the UC Davis community.
