One of the most challenging issues on college and university campuses today is how First Amendment rights can be protected for community members and guests while providing spaces that feel safe for attendees and observers. How can college unions and student activities professionals successfully manage programs/events that may be seen as controversial or even incendiary and meet the expectations of the multiple populations involved, including students, administration, law enforcement and media? What do you need to know to navigate incidents or gatherings that provide opportunities for learning and growth, yet may also have the potential to result in violence, property damage, and negative publicity for your campus?

Join this discussion to learn more about the history of free speech on campuses and what practices, policies and procedures are being utilized to provide balance and a sense of organization to situations that may initially appear confusing and disorderly. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and share their own experiences.
