Take the Next Step to Promote Free Speech on Your Campus
We know your campus is unique, and there is no out-of-the-box way to make every institution a bastion of free expression. Instead, we’d like to work with you one-on-one to provide you with the tools needed for your campus.
We invite you to contact us with ideas you have for programs and events you’d like to run highlighting the importance of free speech and we’ll help or connect you with the support and resources you need to make it happen.
Here is a sample of the wide variety of faculty-led educational activities IHS supports:
- Hosting a debate among scholars on controversial issues to demonstrate the virtues of civil discourse
- Forming a discussion group for students, faculty, and/or administrators on free speech and open inquiry
- Hosting a seminar involving faculty, administrators, and/or students on free speech and open inquiry. (A sample of recommended readings can be found here)
- Engaging with student organization(s) on issues related to free speech and open inquiry
We can help by providing logistical and financial support, but also connecting you with speakers to make your event a success.
IHS wants to support faculty in making certain that free, open, and lively debate flourish in America’s colleges and universities. Contact us at email@example.com and one of our Program Officers will work with you to help free and open discussion flourish on your campus.
Note: We believe the topic of campus free speech is not only important to faculty, but also students. Click here to see our free speech resources for students.
