Intellectual Diversity and Campus Culture: How Woke is Too Woke?


May 11, 2023
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Event Category:
Canoe Place Pavilion

As commencement ceremonies approach and higher education decisions loom in families’ futures, join us in the Front Row for an engaging discussion on the timely and provocative debates happening on college campuses. Michael Roth will touch on today’s hot-button topics of affirmative action, political correctness, and free speech, which he writes about in his book, Safe Enough Spaces: A Pragmatist’s Approach to Inclusion, Free Speech, and Political Correctness on College Campuses. The historian, curator, and teacher is also a public advocate for a “pragmatic liberal education” — the cornerstone of his work as president of Wesleyan University for the past 16 years.

Wine and refreshments will be served.
