Campus Discourse: The State of Free Speech

A panel of classmates facilitated by Naunihal Singh

Debates about campus discourse have roiled colleges and universities across the nation, including Yale and many others.  How can schools foster civil discourse and create campus communities that welcome divergent views and facilitate dissent?  How can schools ensure that students expose themselves to a broad array of perspectives to enhance their understanding of the complex issues of today's world?  How are those priorities balanced against the desire to guard against hate speech and other forms of bigotry? 

Friday, May 26, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Raising Kids in the Digital Age

A panel of classmates facilitated by Adam Moore

Each year brings new technology, new social media platforms, and new complexities to raising children. How can parents help children learn to use technology wisely, while guarding against some of the problems and pitfalls that technology use can bring? How can parents manage the ever-increasing role of social media in the lives of younger and younger children, while maintaining healthy limits and protections? And how can parents balance tweens' and teens' desire for privacy with their own desire to monitor and protect?

Panelists:

Deborah Banner, PhD -- middle and high school English teacher

Lisa Damour, PhD -- psychologist and author

Olutoyin Fayemi, MD -- pediatrician

America's Role in Today's Geopolitical Landscape: A Conversation with Samantha Power and Jim Sciutto

In the 25 years since our graduation, Samantha Power (SY92) has had a unique view of some of the world's most pressing challenges. First, as a journalist and academic, she was a witness to genocide in the former Yugoslavia, chronicling its awful history in her Pulitzer Prize winning book, "A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide." Later, she would become a champion of human rights, as President Obama's Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights, and then US Ambassador to the United Nations. In those positions, she was central to decision-making on US intervention in Libya and the US response to the Arab Spring. 

In this discussion, led by CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto (PC92), Samantha will share her personal experiences of the principal foreign policy challenges of the last decade, including how her time at Yale prepared her for it all. We'll also ask her expert view of the myriad challenges facing the US today, in a time that many describe as the most dangerous and unpredictable as any since World War II.
