‘But, I love that he can speak. I love that he’s able, and apparently more than a little eager, to use his voice.’
With the Free Expression Form and the Ten Student Service initiatives launched by UGBC this week, new discourse looks to be opened on the issue of free speech.
Another round of fliers dumped on BC’s campus stands as a reminder that issues with the topic of free speech still persist.
For students looking to change University policies regarding free speech, hanging up illegal fliers is not the way to go.
Boston-area protesters, including students from MIT and Brandeis, marched across campus to challenge the University’s free speech and divestment policies.
Allowing students to encounter people and conversations that they don’t like, or that makes them uncomfortable is the perfect opportunity to learn and grow, which is what a university is built to do.
