A live streamed event.
In an age where political division is at an all-time high and where political debates among peers are increasingly hostile, the role of educators and academia is unique. Some have equated college campuses with the tools of leftist indoctrination. Others believe college should serve as the ultimate market-place of ideas, where ideas, including political ones, are put to the test without fear of reprisal.
So, what is the role of your professors? Should they be apolitical vessels of knowledge? Should some professors be able to discuss politics more than others? In this module we will discuss the nature of higher education, considerations around diversity and inclusion, the differences between public vs. private universities, and students’ and professors’ role as members in a learning community.
