Recent headlines have drawn attention to free-speech controversies at university campuses across the country. Free-speech advocates argue that a core part of a public university’s educational mission is to facilitate the education of future leaders in a democracy and that First Amendment free speech principles are thus essential in resolving these campus speech disputes. In this view, when campus speakers face censorship from authorities or calls for such from the public, core First Amendment rights are implicated. In the 2018 Fordham Debate, two of the nation’s leading First Amendment scholars debate this question.
