Martin Prize for Excellence in College Trusteeship, Karrin Taylor Robson, founder of the Regents’ Cup student debate competition at Arizona State University, strongly argued that if we can restore free speech, civil discourse, and democratic engagement in higher education, we will restore education in America.
