Robert Post, former Dean of Yale Law School, and Lucas Swaine, Professor of Political Science at Dartmouth, will be joining us to discuss pertinent issues of free speech. This is a pioneering event, one which holds immense promise to enhance non-partisan, open discourse across undergraduate colleges in America.
