Honoring and respecting free speech

Dear Anteaters, Over the course of the past several weeks, our campus has again been forced to confront the question of how we honor and respect the value of free speech when it is tested amid speakers whose messages are perceived to be offensive, racist, inappropriate and inconsistent with the values our campus embraces. It is true that we hold intellectual inquiry and the free and rigorous exchange of ideas as bedrock principles of institutions of higher education. As a public university, we must respect the rights of all members of our community who wish to express opinion, voice support,…

Earlier this week I shared and discussed my report entitled “Higher Ground” with the Chancellor’s Cabinet. (The report is now available here.)

Dear colleagues, UCI aspires to be a national leader and global model of inclusive excellence. We seek to create a campus community where all expect equity, support diversity and practice inclusion. Each of us can and should contribute to shaping this vital campus aspiration. If anything, the UCI Black Student Union demands movement reminds us that inclusive excellence remains a work in progress across the country and at the University of California. In January 2015, the UCI Black Student Union demands team issued a call to improve conditions for black students to thrive. At the direction of Chancellor Gillman, the…
