“Liberty in Peril: Threats to Free Speech on Campus,” a talk by Robert Shibley, Executive Director, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), presented in celebration of the Bill of Rights by the School of Public and International Affairs.

Robert L. Shibley, FIRE’s executive director, is a graduate of Duke University and Duke University School of Law. He is the author of Twisting Title IX, from Encounter Books. Robert’s experience serving as the managing editor of a college newspaper that frequently decried (and faced) censorship and bias led him to a career defending the rights of college and university students and faculty members. He has been with FIRE since 2003.

Along with speaking to and working with hundreds of campuses on issues related to the First Amendment, Robert has represented FIRE on The O’Reilly Factor, CNN Tonight, Stossel, Fox and Friends, and Lou Dobbs Tonight, in national and international radio and TV interviews, and in op-eds in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Washington Post, and TIME, as well as the New York
Post, Boston Globe, Reason, National Review, and many other newspapers and magazines. He is a member of the bar in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Florida. He lives with his family in Wake County.

This event is free and open to the public.
