Cost and Admission

This event is free to attend.

Please join us for an evening with Dr. Jonathan Haidt, noted social psychologist, author and prominent voice on the disconcerting trend emerging on college campuses and throughout society today: the rise of illiberalism, suppression of open discourse and intimidation that stifles viewpoint diversity and limits critical thinking. Haidt will address the subject of his forthcoming book — The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting up a Generation for Failure — in which he investigates the causes of our current confusion, conflict and polarization and offers solutions for individuals and institutions to flourish amidst our differences.
