  • Faculty will be trained on university rules concerning disrupted events and are expected to ensure protections for free speech.
  • Associate Dean Tirien Steinbach, who treated the Judge with disrespect is currently on leave. She spoke about the importance of “Free speech” while simultaneously preventing him from speaking.
