When Professor Samuel Abrams of Sarah Lawrence College wrote an opinion piece for The New York Times in October 2018, he didn't expect a stunning backlash from students, faculty and administrators. The episode has become one of the hottest touchpoints in the national conversation on academic freedom and viewpoint diversity. In this podcast, Abrams joins former University of Pennsylvania trustee Paul Levy and ACTA president Michael Poliakoff for a penetrating discussion on the threats that campus monocultures pose to freedom of expression, reasonable debate and dialogue in higher education.
