The Dean of Students Office at the University of Arizona is pleased to present
the Constitutional Issues in Higher Education Symposium
June 22, 2017
Public institutions of Higher Education strive to support and encourage robust inquiry and critical discourse, which are foundational to academic pursuits, while encouraging civility, respect, and access to educational opportunities. Balancing these often incongruous priorities and values is a difficult but essential responsibility for members of a university community. This year’s symposium theme “Welcoming Speech” highlights the important role of colleges and universities to protect and promote free inquiry and expression as well as develop individuals who are intellectually and socially prepared for meaningful civic engagement and respectful dialogue.
We hope you will join us for a day of discussion, reflection, and learning! Last year’s symposium “sold out” so we encourage you to reserve your spot by registering today!
Welcome to the University of Arizona, a land grant institution that takes seriously our responsibility to provide inclusive and accessible education which nurtures the development of citizens prepared for robust engagement in civic life.
