This training by Lara Schwartz and Andrea Malkin Brenner, PhD, will focus on responding to free speech, hate speech, First Amendment challenges and race-related incidents on campus for students and for faculty and staff. Brenner and Schwartz will present lessons learned from the previous sessions and propose a path forward for developing sustainable responses. This session will encourage participants to take the perspective of other campus stakeholders and view speech challenges through the lens of other members of the UAB community. Civility in action will be taught in a hands-on workshop that includes brainstorming for campus solutions while evaluating campus policies regarding free speech, hate speech, and expression and learn about avenues for civic engagement on and off campus beyond traditional protest.
