Join the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities on Tuesday, May 11 from 3:00-4:00pm EDT for a special webinar in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month featuring five Asian Pacific American leaders in public higher education.
During this event, the featured speakers will discuss their own personal journey from growing up to becoming campus leaders. They will discuss the important role Asian American and Pacific Islander students, faculty, and staff play on campus and in their communities as well as how university leadership can best support them while recognizing and honoring the diverse composition of the community. The conversation will also explore the troubling increase in verbal attacks and physical violence across the country against members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, including how campuses are working to raise awareness and ensure the safety for the AAPI community while fostering an inclusive environment.
Freedom of Expression at Ohio State
As Buckeyes, we derive great strength from bringing together people from different backgrounds and learning from their experiences. As a land-grant institution, The Ohio State University takes seriously its role in promoting and supporting public discourse. We are steadfastly committed to protecting the First Amendment right to free speech and expression on our campuses. Encouraging individuals to share their varying thoughts and perspectives enriches the university environment and can allow community members to experience new ideas.

Political Activity Guidelines
University staff and faculty members are encouraged to fully and freely exercise their constitutional right to vote, as well as express their personal opinions regarding political candidates, issues, local, state and national programs, initiatives and referendums. However, as employees of a public institution there are restrictions on exercising these rights in a manner that suggests university endorsement of a cause or candidate.
