The kick-off event of the Chicago Humanities Summit will open with a conversation about the state of speech at colleges and universities. University of Chicago President Robert Zimmer will open the day’s events with a brief overview of the path U of C has taken with regard to free speech on campus. Following Zimmer, Scott Jaschik of Inside Higher Ed will moderate a panel discussion featuring Northwestern University Provost Jonathan Holloway (formerly Dean of the undergraduate Yale College), Professor Allison Stanger of Middlebury College, and Johns Hopkins Bioethics Masters Student Cameron Okeke, who has written passionately about speech and diversity on college campuses.
