In this episode I talk with Dan Cullen, a professor of philosophy at Rhodes College and director of the Project for the Study of Liberal Democracy. He was a member of the Academic Leaders Task Force on Campus Free Expression. The task force was assembled by the Bipartisan Policy Center and recently released its report, Campus Free Expression: A New Roadmap. We talk about the challenges for free expression on college campuses, the responsibilities of various campus officials in building a better campus climate for free speech, and the recommendations in the report.
