Does Freedom of Speech Really Mean I Can Say Whatever I Want?

We all have a point of view. We come to that view from our experiences, backgrounds and unique perspectives. In this initial #ChapsUniteAgainstRacism forum, we will have a roundtable discussion with invited guests about the lines between free speech and potentially disruptive behavior on our campus and in our communities. Guests are Interim Dean of Students Dr. Nathania Montes, General Counsel Lilianna Kalin, Political Science Professor David Goldberg, Student Life Manager Chuck Steele, Student Leadership Council Student Representative Dorcas Brou and Student Trustee Samiha Syed.
