Canceled on Campus: GenZ Students on Challenges to Free Expression

This event has passed.

Generation Z students say the climate on their campus discourages them from engaging with ideas openly—fearing a social cost from their peers—resulting in self-censorship and undermining the mission of the university.  But most say they want to hear a wider range of viewpoints on campus, and some are seeking ways to overcome these challenges to foster diversity and open exchange.

Please join us on September 15 for BPC’s annual Constitution Day event to hear from a panel of student leaders about barriers to open inquiry on campus and how they have promoted a culture of free expression.
