Combating Censorship: Does Free Speech and Expression Have a Future on Campus?

February 18, 2017 | 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

10th International Students for Liberty Conference, Washington, D.C.

Tired of campus political correctness? Do you feel like you have to censor your thoughts and ideas lest you run afoul of campus speech codes? Lovers of personal liberty know free speech is important, but how do we protect it where it’s most threatened—in academia.

Join this breakout session for in-depth look at issues in free speech and free expression on campus and a look back at a tumultuous year in campus free speech. Legislative Counsel for Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) Randal Meyer, ACTA Director of Curricular Reform and Academic Outreach Eric Bledsoe, and FIRE Director of Litigation Marieke Tuthill Beck-Coon will discuss strategies for combating censorship. Get the inside scoop on how to work with trustees, First Amendment experts, and policymakers to expand intellectual diversity and academic freedom on campus.
