The next faculty forum in the free speech series grew out of our recent conversation on legal and political implications. We will now consider the impacts of speech on the mind, body, and soul. With this panel, we invite our faculty and the campus community to think beyond speech as a vehicle for communicating ideas. We will examine the power of speech and its impact on our psychological and physiological well being. Speech has the power to both harm and heal, and this panel will delve into how that impacts individuals and communities.

Faculty, staff, students, and alumni are welcome. There is no cost for admission; please bring campus or other picture ID to verify your affiliation. Doors will open at 3:30. Seating is limited.
