The freedom of academics and students to think and speak freely, on and off campus, has empowered the pursuit of truth and human flourishing. This freedom is currently being challenged on campuses across the country from people on every part of the political spectrum. What can be done to protect free speech on campus? How can Princeton be a leader in the fight to protect the right to free expression? Join us for a discussion on all of this and much more.

Panelists will include distinguished alumni and current students. Professor Robert P. George, Director of the James Madison Program, will moderate the discussion. 

This event is part of our Initiative on Freedom of Thought, Inquiry, and Expression.
