“Working in the business of free speech can be tough sometimes. I’ve read and heard opinions that have befuddled me, disgusted me, and everything in between. But even the speech that makes me the angriest and most frustrated is usually protected by the United States Constitution. While it can put me in an intellectual tailspin some days, it is ultimately much more important that I put any personal feelings aside and make sure the broad protections of the First Amendment and the principles of free speech are protected for everyone on college campuses.” (02/24/17)
