In support of the University of Michigan’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives, several events on the topics of speech and inclusion will take place on campus throughout the winter 2018 semester as part of the series, “Speech and Inclusion: Recognizing Conflict and Building Tools for Engagement.”
As the discussion of free speech regulations and requirements have sparked dialogue across colleges and universities throughout the United States, many of these institutions now face the challenge of harmonizing free speech rights with inclusive campus climates.
The Speech and Inclusion series aims to engage differing views on this topic, employ productive conversations that promote a positive campus environment, and explore how varying perspectives impact politics, culture, higher education, sports and journalism.
As an institution driven by the American values of free speech and inclusion, the University of Michigan is driven to assist the campus community in developing a deeper understanding of these complicated challenges in the 21st century.
This collaborative series is supported by the Office of the President, Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, National Center for Institutional Diversity, Academic Innovation, Student Life, Alumni Association and Wallace House.
