Politics are part of daily life, and schools are natural places for political discourse. Schools must approach politics on campus with care, however, to avoid either running afoul of the law or disrupting the community in a negative way.
This webinar will explore the legal and practical dichotomy of politics on campus. One portion of the webinar will explore the legal landscape of political activity, including tips to avoid jeopardizing the school’s nonprofit status, and potential legal issues related to student media, get-out-the-vote activities, and employee personal political activity, among others. Then we’ll explore the lessons learned from higher education on political discourse and dissent on college campuses, as well as practical advice for school leaders responding to challenges on campus.
After a brief overview of the issues and strategies, there will be a question-and-answer discussion.
