U of I Wants Free Speech Task Force

The University of Illinois is going to study free speech. The school yesterday announced a task force to develop policies to avoid 'disruptions' at campus events and classes. Interim Provost John Wilkin says the idea is to make sure the school knows how to handle protestors who may want to interrupt any speaker that they don't agree with. Wilkin said the university wants to protect free speech while 'engaging with the divisive sorts of things' you sometimes see in campus speeches.
