New free speech center at my university will drive debate we sorely need: Napolitano
"Our First Amendment right to freely express ourselves is suddenly controversial. It's time to explore the state of free speech on campus and what tomorrow holds for democracy.

UCOP directives to manage UC on campus problems via DC...
UC, roiled by 1st Amendment controversies, to launch national free speech center

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-uc-free-speech-center-20171026-story.html
Includes:
"The center’s advisory board will be headed by UC Irvine Chancellor Howard Gillman and UC Berkeley Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, a renowned 1st Amendment scholar. The pair co-wrote a book, “Free Speech on Campus.”

Other board members include former U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer; New York Times columnist Bret Stephens; John King, president and chief executive of the Education Trust and former U.S. secretary of education; Anne Kornblut, director of strategic communications at Facebook; Geoffrey R. Stone, a 1st Amendment scholar and professor at the University of Chicago Law School; Avi Oved, a UCLA law student; and Washington Post columnist George Will."

Is the location of the center and the advisory board membership acceptable to UC community? Will travel etc for these folks to go to DC be paid for by UC via this new center created by fiat? Is that scheme for the purpose of getting to DC more often on a UC dime?
