When: Mar 16, 2018 11:30 AM to 11:50 PM

Location: Swenson Hall 2074

A growing national debate has broken out over the extent to which colleges/universities, the media, places of employment, and other entities should monitor individual expression and speech. Particularly in places of learning, most would agree that a balance must be established between community standards, students’ rights to feel safe, academic freedom, and the ability of individuals to express controversial or unpopular opinions and perspectives. Come and learn about the legal boundaries and implications of free speech in the University setting.

Swenson Hall is located on the UW-Superior campus, 1610 Weeks Ave. For maps and directions to campus, visit www.uwsuper.edu/directions.
