Response to FIRE from William Harms, Associate News Director, University of Chicago

By on April 9, 2009

Dear Luke:

This is what we have to say at this time in response to your earlier question.

Freedom of expression is a core value of the University of Chicago. In order to make the free exchange of ideas possible, students, faculty, and other members of our community must help create a safe, respectful climate in which inquiry and debate can flourish. The University’s policies and practices are designed to safeguard that culture of robust and respectful discussion, and the legitimate rights of all involved.

Bill
