Proposal for Presentation

Democracies thrive on open and even oppositional debate. Both civility and freedom help keep debate from becoming a civil war or flight into aristocracy. Schools socialize youth in democracies to have the knowledge, skills, character, and commitments needed to keep democratic processes healthy. This is why the law allows political free speech on campuses. But “not all things that are lawful are profitable” (I Cor 10:23). Two professors in leadership talk about best practices related to the recent contested 2016 U.S. Presidential election campaign and their role to foster both spiritual humility and use their research and scholarly knowledge to critique political leaders. Legal and practical tools will be shared.

Acknowledgments

Recent legal cases studies of student and faculty political free speech will be shared.

Practices and activities useful in classrooms will be presented.
