In recent years, universities have been at the center of a divisive debate around free speech and political correctness. In his book Safe Enough Spaces, Wesleyan University President Michael Roth argues that college campuses should be beacons of empathy and inclusion where diversity is celebrated and intellectual debate encouraged. As colleges prepare for an entirely new semester, join Roth for a discussion about how to step outside the comfort zone of your own world view without entirely jettisoning a safe space.

This program is generously underwritten by Harpinder Ajmani in honor of his late parents, Labh and Rajendra Ajmani.

This week's programs presented with the support of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
