Colgate will host a debate in honor of Constitution Day this fall, “Free Speech and Equal Protection: Where to draw the Line?” featuring Keith Whittington, professor of politics at Princeton University, author of You Can't Teach That!, and Ulrich Baer, university professor of New York University, author of What Snowflakes Get Right. The annual debate will take place from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 12 in Love Auditorium, and it is sponsored by the Forum on Constitutional Government and the Center for Freedom and Western Civilization.

The Constitution Day Debate brings to campus seasoned experts in their fields to debate topics facing the nation as a way to celebrate the national holiday and to encourage informed discourse among students. Since 2005, Colgate has celebrated the holiday with a debate on a variety of constitutional issues. Last year’s debate focused on the constitutionality of the administrative state, and other debates have featured abortion, affirmative action in college admissions, NSA surveillance, and free speech vs. hate speech.

Zoom registration information will be available before the event.
