Beyond Charlottesville: What is the Role of the University in a Divided World?

Apr 18, 2018
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Description

Please join us for the final part or our four-part series Beyond Charlottesville.

There was a time when most American universities were the unabashed champions of the “marketplace of ideas,” echoing Justice Brandeis in arguing that the remedy for bad speech is more speech, not enforced silence. But, in a badly divided country, it can seem nearly impossible to keep university doors open to everyone without enraging alumni, donors, faculty, communities, and/or students, many of whom don’t believe they should have to listen to ideas they don’t agree with. What should beleaguered administrators do?

This panel discussion will include Dr. Carl Drummond, vice chancellor for academic affairs and enrollment management, Dr. Jeffrey Malanson, professor of History, and Dr. Assem Nasr, professor of Communication.
