On Sept. 5, 2018, the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences presented “The Haury Conversation on Campus Free Speech.”

The panel discussed the boundaries of free speech on campus, where there is often a tension between adhering to the legal guidelines of free speech and promoting a non-hostile learning environment.

The panelists included some of the most prominent voices in the country on the topic of free speech: Sigal Ben-Porath, author of “Free Speech on Campus”; Noam Chomsky, an outspoken advocate for free speech; and Nadine Strossen, lawyer and former president of the American Civil Liberties Union. The panel was moderated by famed First Amendment attorney, Bob Corn-Revere. Trevor Timm, the co-founder and executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, also spoke.
