Back to events

Trigger warnings, microaggressions, safe spaces, the disinvitation of speakers, the renaming of campus symbols: every university, college, and school has grappled with controversy related to a swirl of community issues in the past few years. 

John Palfrey stimulated a conversation about the intersection between a growing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and the tradition of free expression on campuses. His remarks were followed by a conversation with Martha Minow and questions from the audience.
