College used to be grounded in the inviolate principle that each of us should confront new ideas, speak our minds, and learn. Has that time passed?

This year alone we have seen a riot at U.C. Berkeley and violence at Middlebury college over controversial speakers.

Instead of “express yourself,” a new view seems to be taking hold: “Suppress yourself—or I’ll do it for you.”

What is happening to free speech on campus?

On Tuesday, April 18, join the Ayn Rand Institute, the University of Texas-Austin Objectivism Society, Young Conservatives of Texas, and our distinguished panelists for a special discussion focused on this question. 

The event is free and includes a catered reception, and the first 50 students to arrive will receive a free book! Please RSVP by April 17.
