The Common Room: Managing Political Difference on the Virtual Campus | PEN America

October 30, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The 2020 general election is unlike any other. Understanding how campuses can facilitate respectful and productive dialogue across political differences will be key during this tense time, but doing so virtually presents additional challenges. What can faculty, administrators, and staff do now to prepare for the difficult dialogues that lie ahead?

Join Jonathan Friedman, director of PEN America’s campus free speech program, for an interactive forum to discuss this issue and possible responses from the higher ed sector. Friedman will be joined by guests Vicka Bell-Robinson, director of residence life at Miami University, and Sigal Ben-Porath, professor of education at the University of Pennsylvania.
