Pennoni Panels: A Classroom Divided: Whose Academic Freedom is at Stake?
Start Date: 2/3/2022Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 2/3/2022End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description
In the midst of upheaval, higher education institutions attempt to respond. Despite racism and inequity not being new topics, the cultural confrontation with police brutality, violence against marginalized communities, and systemic racism in 2020 led to forums, panels, committees, and dialogues being held at institutions across the country. Task forces examined and evaluated policies, made recommendations, and now, some argue, institutions are expected to reframe the curriculum for inclusivity. For others, this is a topic that has been overstated and that oversight by diversity administrators is impeding the freedom of faculty to teach their subjects freely and in the fashion they wish.
