About this event:

The last academic year saw waves of student protests, disinvitations of campus speakers, and calls for trigger warnings and safe spaces. University administrators tasked with enforcing order and upholding intellectual freedom often found themselves unprepared—or else caved to student demands. What does academic freedom mean in this age of political correctness? Join us as we discuss the status of academic freedom today and how to rebuild its foundations. 

The John W. Pope Center will release a new report on academic freedom. Read Peter Wood’s statement The Architecture of Intellectual Freedom on the NAS website.

This event is free and open to the public. We encourage all NAS members to attend. Registration will open in mid-September.
