Election Public Zoom Deliberation: Free Speech and the Inclusive Campus

Please join 2022 election candidates, members of our public, students, faculty, staff, and administration to deliberate together on this critical issue.  

Discussion will happen in five rounds of small group break-out sessions.  Together we will consider: 

  • Is free speech and an inclusive campus in opposition to each other? Do we have to give up one to have the other? 

  • What are our roles in creating the community we want? 

Please download and read the Issue Guide to prepare for the meeting. (pdf)


Students who actively participate by contributing to discussion in each round either through text, chat, or having their camera turned on (nonverbal participation) will be entered in a raffle for prizes.

This recorded event is part of a UHD study on deliberation, though no identifying information will be used.  Complete information and a consent form is provided upon registration.
