Can free speech coexist with an inclusive campus environment?

“An urgent and indispensable roadmap to guide us through one of the most divisive periods in American history.”—Stephen Rohde, Los Angeles Review of Books

Hardly a week goes by without another controversy over free speech on college campuses. On one side, there are increased demands to censor hateful, disrespectful, and bullying expression and to ensure an inclusive and nondiscriminatory learning environment. On the other side are traditional free speech advocates who charge that recent demands for censorship coddle students and threaten free inquiry. In this clear and carefully reasoned book, a university chancellor and a law school dean—both constitutional scholars who teach a course in free speech to undergraduates—argue that campuses must provide supportive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body but can never restrict the expression of ideas. This book provides the background necessary to understanding the importance of free speech on campus and offers clear prescriptions for what colleges can and can’t do when dealing with free speech controversies.
Erwin Chemerinsky is dean of Berkeley Law, University of California. Howard Gillman is chancellor and professor of law, political science, and history, University of California, Irvine.
