Freedom of speech in the university community to be topic of WCHHS Brown Bag discussion
The Waldron College of Health and Human Services (WCHHS) will host an Equity Brown Bag discussion on limitations and issues of freedom of speech in the university community on Feb. 17 at noon in Waldron 354.
"We want to recognize the issues by talking about them and to educate ourselves by discussing our own differences in opinion," said Corey Cassidy, associate dean of Waldron College of Health and Human Services. "We want the participants to be open-minded and ready to share with one another."
The discussion is the third in a four-part series of discussions on equity, diversity, inclusion and participation hosted by the WCHHS Equity Committee.
"This is a safe zone for RU students, staff, and faculty. We know there are issues that need to be addressed and that they are not going away on their own," Cassidy said. "You can’t move forward if you do not talk openly among your own colleagues and friends."
