Event Details

Join us for a discussion on the role of free speech on college and university campuses. How is free speech defined? Are legal requirements related to First Amendment free speech protections different for public and private universities? Should free speech be unfettered on campus? Should certain principles guide administrative action concerning free speech?

This conversation will be moderated by Brendan Miniter, VP and Editor of Editorials for The Dallas Morning News.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Carine M. Feyten, Chancellor and President, Texas Woman’s University
  • Dr. John Plotts, Interim President, University of Dallas
  • Dr. Neal Smatresk, President, University of North Texas

The Civil Discourse Series presents multiple sides of a thought-provoking topic through respectful discussion. For each event, the Museum will convene a panel of subject matter experts to represent their unique perspectives on an issue related to human and civil rights.

Sponsors: The Dallas Morning News, Embrey Family Foundation, Anonymous
