Bipartisan Policy Center “Dialogue Across Difference: Students Bridge Divides” with Student Panel, September 15 at 9am

September 15 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Constitution Day annually celebrates America’s founding principles of liberty, equality, and self-governance.

Our democracy can only flourish when its citizens are informed and engaged, capable of thinking for themselves and participating in respectful debate.

But ideological intolerance has placed higher education squarely in the middle of the nation’s culture wars. Fear of the supercharged social media call-out culture chills student speech—even in the classroom, about half of students say they keep dissenting opinions to themselves. Some students are stepping up to create change by cultivating spaces for their student peers to express their views freely and engage in civil discourse.

Join us on September 15 for our annual Constitution Day event to hear from student leaders about their initiatives to bridge ideological divides on campus.
