Subject: [AllFaculty-list] Invitation to Lunch Forum with Dr. Robert Zimmer on Free Expression on Campus

Dear Colleagues,

I write to invite you to a lunchtime forum on free expression with Dr. Robert Zimmer, President of The University of Chicago, who will be here next week for the Sharp Viewpoint Series. The forum will be held on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, from 12:30-2:00pm in the Richmond. The forum presents an opportunity for us to engage with President Zimmer and each other on issues surrounding free expression, including free speech, hate speech, and speech codes, among others.

President Zimmer is President Crutcher’s featured guest in the Sharp Viewpoint Series later that evening, on Freedom of Expression on Campus (7:00pm, Queally Center).

A buffet lunch will be provided. During lunch, you will have the opportunity to engage your colleagues over questions and concerns regarding free expression at Richmond. Following lunch, there will be a moderated discussion among us and President Zimmer.

Please RSVP here<https://facultysenate.richmond.edu/meetings/lunch-rsvp.html> no later than Monday, February 11, 2019. Seating will accommodate 30 participants. In your RSVP, I ask that you submit a question or topic regarding freedom of expression at Richmond that we might take up at the forum. You will have the option to pose questions from the “floor” as well, based on your conversations with colleagues over lunch.

The lunchtime forum is co-sponsored by the University Faculty Senate and the Office of the President.

Freedom of expression is controversial and talking about it is hard, as we already know and as we experienced in yesterday’s Got Voice? town hall. The lunchtime forum is meant to examine this controversial issue further, with the goal to learn from each other and from President Zimmer.
