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.

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.
