From Targeting in Academia to Promoting Trust and Understanding

Institutions of higher learning are environments where new ideas, visions, and discoveries are cultivated. These pursuits are enriched through diversity of thought and perspective in an environment where we strive for a spirit of pluralism.

Unfortunately, universities can be the target for attacks by those who may feel threatened by this important work. The conference responds to this challenge and contribute to discussions on academic freedom and the principles of freedom of expression.
