SA Voices From the Field

Jul 23, 2020

Today on SA Voices From the Field we have Brandi Hephner LaBanc, Frank Fernandez and Neal Hutchens, authors of a new NASPA book called, The Contested Campus: Aligning Professional Values, Social Justice, and Free Speech

About the Book

The Contested Campus combines consideration of contemporary legal issues and standards with the exercise of professional expertise and experience. Written for student affairs professionals of all levels and graduate students, this accessible and useful resource goes beyond discussion of legal compliance by bringing much-needed clarity and guidance on a wide array of complex campus free speech issues. Chapters feature proactive campus-based practices to consider as well as diverse voices and experiences to make the book directly relevant to practice.
