Navigating First Amendment Student Rights and Engagement

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion co-sponsored an event with the CFDE:  “Navigating First Amendment Student Rights and Engagement.”  On Thursday, October 29, we held a conversation with Emerson Sykes, ACLU attorney, focusing on how faculty, staff, and graduate student instructors can support free speech on college campuses.  More broadly, we explored key ideas and common controversies around free speech, including ways to navigate free speech situations on campus. We also also addressed why First Amendment rights are important for college students and how students have used their rights to create change.

Emerson Sykes is a staff attorney with the ACLU Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, where he focuses on First Amendment free speech protections.

While the CFDE and ODEI co-hosted this particular workshop, this is part of a larger four-day free speech workshop series organized by Emory Campus Life and the Office of the Provost.
