Description

Universities exist to foster rational discourse about life’s most important questions. Recent events--including violent protests and efforts to silence scholars--have many concerned that academic freedom and intellectual diversity in our nation’s top universities are under threat.

 

To address the future of intellectual freedom in the academy, the Zephyr Institute hosted a dinner for faculty members, alumni, and community leaders interested in supporting a flourishing academic environment. Professors Robert P. George of Princeton, Michael McConnell of the Stanford Constitutional Law Center, and Steven Justice, Chancellor’s Professor of English at UC Berkeley, shared their experiences working with university administrations to further the cause of academic freedom.
