Inclusive Campus Forum

How do we define Hate Speech vs. Free Speech within an academic community?

Thursday, November 17th from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the North Creek Event Center

All members of the UW Bothell community are invited to attend an interactive forum facilitated by Kari Lerum and Terryl Ross to discuss how we can better navigate difficult conversations inside and outside of the classroom.
Specifically, we will focus on defining what constitutes “hate” speech and “free” speech within the context of a commitment to high academic integrity and campus diversity. During this forum we will discuss and review campus inclusion values and Diversity Statement, hate speech vs. free speech, and relevant sections from the student conduct code, and faculty code. We will also have attendees break into small groups to generate and share tools for participants in navigating difficult conversations while holding a high bar for academic integrity and inclusivity.
This is the first in on-going equity and inclusion forums that will be available to the campus during the academic year.  If you are interested in helping to facilitate this particular forum please contact Kari Lerum or Terryl Ross  For more information about future forums contact Terryl Ross at (425) 352-3670.
