In his remarks upon accepting the 2018 Jerry L. Martin Prize for Excellence in College Trusteeship, former University of Pennsylvania trustee Paul S. Levy condemns the group think that is squelching civil debate and freedom of expression on college campuses. He offers recommendations to trustees on how to combat it and reclaim the ethics of higher learning. The award was presented on October 12, 2018.
