"Great universities are committed to serving the public good by creating
space for discourse and exchange of ideas, though that exchange may be
uncomfortable and will sometimes challenge values and beliefs. There is
no mandate to agree
, only to serve society by allowing learning to take
place. If universities do not hold onto this, we do not serve the
greater good. Because next time it will be a different speaker and a different issue, and the dividing lines will not be the same.
