TCC: Brighton Campus Fall Conversation--Free Speech and Diverse Viewpoints on College Campuses

Back to all events

10/16/2017
12-201
12:00 pm - 12:50 pm

Our current political scene is very polarized, with no apparent common ground among opposing viewpoints. Does everyone feel free to express opinions without denigration on this campus?  Do we shut down ideas that we do not like or do not agree with in our classrooms or with our colleagues?  How do we teach our students to value diverse viewpoints? How do we create a safe space in our classrooms?

Join us for this TCC conversation, and explore these issues with our facilitators who themselves offer diverse points of view.  We will provide an open atmosphere to have an honest dialogue. 

When: 12 PM, Monday, Oct. 16, 2017          

Where: Brighton TCC [12-201]

All faculty and staff are welcome.
