The University of Nevada, Reno's Center for Student Engagement recently launched a website to underscore the role of free speech and student expression on campus. Created in coordination with Associated Students of the University of Nevada, the website aims to underscore both the power and fragility of free speech and the role students play in ensuring its responsible use on our campus and within our democracy.
Under these principles, the site provides countless resources for students to educate themselves about their rights, taking action and finding assistance.
Broken up into three main subheadings: learn, act and support, the site provides ease of access and clarity. Under each, students can access a variety of resources meant to educate, empower and connect them with the University community.
Whether one is learning about the First Amendment, University policies or planning an event, the website makes it easier for students to find the resources and support they need to express themselves on campus.
"Student expression, rights and responsibilities should be grounded in a shared public trust," Sandra Rodriguez, Director of the Center for Student Engagement said. "We hope this site will encourage students to move toward positive, educational use of these rights and responsibilities."
Questions and feedback regarding the website can be submitted directly to The Center for Student Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
