Political Correctness and the Problems for Academic Freedom

Responding to recent upheaval on college campuses against commencement speakers who might be considered too "controversial" for graduation day, Anne D. Neal, co-founder and president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, stated that the preoccupation with political correctness is counter-effective. She notes in an interview with the Washington Post: "the academy, in too many places, has become one-sided, coercive and hostile to a multiplicity of perspectives," suppressing the circulation of ideas that originally served as the building blocks of these institutions. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on political correctness in higher education.
