The San Diego State University (SDSU) has launched two websites that aim to raise students’ awareness of free speech rights and to provide a mechanism for reporting incidents related to diversity and inclusion.
The websites were developed by the representatives of different SDSU divisions including the Student Affairs, Associated Students, Faculty Advancement, Business and Financial Affairs Services Units.
The Free Speech website will provide information on students’ Constitutional rights and it will be updated with current information over time. According to Associated Students president Christian Onwuka, the site will help students learn the use of free speech and its difference with hate speech.
The Inclusive SDSU website will provide students with a reporting system to share their campus experiences related to inclusion and diversity. According to Associate Chief Diversity Officer for Student Engagement Jessica Nare, their goal is to ensure that students feel included and welcome on campus.
