ACADEMIC FREE SPEECH

Issue

Open dialogue, conversations, discussions and debates which spark student learning occur in the classroom, during student group meetings, and everywhere on campus.

These give an take sessions are extremely crucial and need to happen. The free exchange of ideas help students learn can and sprout spontaneously as they transform into the real world and live out their lives. Despite this, some college and university campuses have adopted restrictions, where free speech can only happen, thereby limiting the exchange of ideas to a certain spot, square, or sidewalk. Restricting speech to these small speech zones contradicts the very idea behind free speech and higher education.
