The first article discusses an incident where a student on Penn State campus was told they were not properly following Penn State’s free speech policies. The student felt otherwise. This article connects directly to my mini team and we analyze and evaluate policies regarding free speech on campus. We can use this article to pinpoint a specific incident where a free speech demonstration was somewhat controversial. We can also use this article to highlight the specific guidelines for free speech demonstrations on Penn State campus.
This article was just a statement made by Penn State President Eric Barron in regards to Richard Spencer’s request to speak on campus. This again can relate to Penn State’s policies on free speech on campus. We can use President Barron’s statement to address what rights the University has to pick and choose who speaks on campus.
