Free Speech and Academic Freedom

  • sopo webeventbanner 15 0348 4

What is free speech? How does being a student impact this First Amendment right? Join WUD SoPo as we hear from Professor Howard Scheweber from the UW-Madison Political Science department about what free speech means on college campuses. He will provide historical context from previous movements and government interventions and will discuss what legal and social limits to free speech exist. The role of media and the Board of Regents directive about student protest will also briefly be explored.
