California Association of Scholars Conference in June

National Association of Scholars

On Sunday, June 8, to Monday, June 9, the California Association of Scholars (CAS) will co-host a conference, “Failing Grades: The Crisis in Teaching on our University Campuses,” with the American Freedom Alliance.

The conference will examine the consequences that arise when academic standards disappear and students have no freedom to express contrarian views.

Is there hope for our democratic future which depends upon collective discussion and engagement with opposing ideas?

The event will begin with the presentation of a report on the University of California by NAS and the California Association of Scholars, as well an examination of the resulting correspondence between the California Association of Scholars and the UC administration.

This conference, a sequel to the 2008 conference How Free Is the University?, will offer an unprecedented overview of the state of the modern University and how its significant crises and challenges can be addressed.
