Working Group on Campus Discourse

Over the course of 2014–15, the working group developed a plan for a year-long series of events, education and communication that fosters a deep understanding of the responsibilities and challenges to open and fruitful discourse in a networked world. The goal is to address current needs in our community as well as establish a framework that will serve Smith in the future when facing contentious and complex issues. We will aim to create a transparent process that engages students, faculty, staff and alumnae and leads to a campus community that cherishes dissent and welcomes widely divergent views. We envision a period of task force brainstorming and feedback from those four communities, followed by programming and recommendations.
