When the Institution Speaks: Considerations for Public and Private Universities Related to Institutionally-Sponsored Speech

This webinar is not about student protests, provocative speakers, bias incidents, or speech codes. Rather, it is about the moments when the institution itself is the speaker, whether through a presidential proclamation, social media account, or other platform. Join us for a 2-hour webinar where presenters will explore the legal and reputational contours of institutional speech at public and private universities, and in so doing address:

  • The Government Speech Doctrine, institutional academic freedom, and policy frameworks for institutional speech;
  • Public statements by senior leaders;
  • University speech through regulated social media accounts and websites; and
  • Legal, reputational, and other risks.
