Controversial speakers on campus have prompted vigorous debates about our approach to free speech in the public sphere: Are there limits to the speech that should be given a campus venue? How should universities like UF, and their local communities, respond?
This Ethics Cafe provides a forum for wrestling with this difficult issue in a friendly, civil setting. Bring an open mind, a willingness to listen and share, and a desire to learn with and from the members of your community. The event is free and open to all UF students. Refreshments will be provided.
