Student Protests on Campus
April 5, 1 p.m. Eastern
Throughout history, colleges and universities have served as a forum for
the exchange of ideas and free expression; to provide an environment
for students to present their views and beliefs on a variety of topics. A
common method of expression for students are protests. In order to
embrace the important concepts of free speech and expression, it is
beneficial for universities to create specific policies in these areas
and guide staff on how to properly respond. In this webinar we will
discuss different protests and challenging situations at our own
institution, while also sharing our policies related to freedom of
speech, picketing and assembly, and designating public forums. This will
also be an opportunity to gain an insight on how to create policies and
procedures on these topics at your own institutions.
This program is presented by Kerry Spicer, associate director of student activities and organizations, University at Buffalo; and Luke Haumesser, assistant director of student activities and organizations, University at Buffalo.
