The Montana State University departments of political science; and history and philosophy along with the MSU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, are co-sponsoring a panel discussion of MSU’s free speech policy in honor of Constitution Day. The event will be held on Constitution Day, Monday, September 17, 2018, from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom B.
Two members of the MSU’s free speech advisory group - MSU Legal Counsel Kellie Peterson and MSU Police Chief Frank Parrish - will provide an overview of the policy. As in the past, three student respondents will kick off discussion. They are political science major Zach Krumm, history major Robert Montalvo-West, and philosophy major Katie Stobie. ASMSU President Taylor Blossom will host and moderate the discussion.
In addition to the three featured panelists, the MSU free speech advisory group includes VP for University Communications Tracy Ellig, Event Services Director Duane Morris, Business Law Professor Susan Dana, MSU Associate Legal Counsel Blake Christensen, Political Science and International Law Professor Franke Wilmer and ASMSU President Taylor Blossom. The group met weekly over the past year to develop and revise a free speech policy for MSU and also developed guidelines for those who wish to organize speech events on campus.
Light refreshments will be served following the panel and discussion.
