We plan a lively consideration of ​the​ responsibilities ​of faculty to promote the free exchange of ideas on campus, even as we uphold our principles of community, and strive to maintain a campus on which hate and discrimination are not welcome ( We will explore the intersection of these important issues with pedagogy, and our role as educators in this important dialogue.
