University of Kansas Senate forms free speech committee

KSAL StaffMay 14, 2016

The University of Kansas Senate is organizing a committee to research and propose a policy to uphold freedom of speech at the school.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://j.mp/1X1LhCA) the committee, which was recently approved, will form this summer and work through the next academic year.

The committee was proposed by outgoing University Senate President Mike Williams, an associate professor of journalism. He says those on campus sometimes face challenges in expressing themselves freely, and the free exchange of ideas is the bedrock of academic freedom.

The university is facing several difficult subjects, such as racial discrimination and a new law that will allow guns on campus beginning next year.
