Can Free Speech and Religious Pluralism Exist on Campus?

The goal of campus interfaith leaders is to create a vibrant, religiously pluralistic campus. What role does speech play in that mission? Speech can be used as a way to articulate our deepest worldview values but also as a weapon to attack and demean religious and non-religious groups. With seemingly daily battles over the role of free speech on college campuses and a changing American landscape around the status of speech, how do college campuses hoping to achieve a healthy religious diversity navigate the issue of speech? On this webinar, we talk with Nancy Thomas, Director of the Institute for Democracy & Higher Education at Tufts University, about the issue of speech and discuss ways to promote engaging, and sometimes difficult, dialogues that also show respect for religious diversity.
