The University of San Diego's Center for Ethics, Economics and Public Policy Presents DEBATE: IS FREE SPEECH UNDER THREAT ON AMERICA'S COLLEGE CAMPUSES?

Are universities still a home to the free and robust exchange of competing ideas? Or has political correctness and the desire to create “safe spaces” undermined that ideal? Riots and protests across America’s college campuses question the very foundations of free speech and open inquiry. Join USD’s Center for Ethics, Economics, and Public Policy and the Institute for Humane studies as we host a debate exploring Free Speech in higher education.

Featuring:

  • Greg Lukianoff - President, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education
  • Stanley Fish - Professor, Florida International University
