UVM Student, Miranda Zigler, Weighs in on Campus Free Speech Issues

This week, Miranda Zigler, sophomore at the University of Vermont and competitive member of the Lawrence Debate Union, shared her thoughts on free speech on campus:

“If you limit free speech, you run the risk of creating an echo chamber in which only one set of ideas is proliferated and discussed. In most spaces, including contemporary college campuses like UVM, this often looks like an environment characterized by divisiveness and polarized attitudes. Colleges are spaces of learning and self expression; therefore, it’s important that students are exposed to diversity viewpoints on their campuses.”
