Across Campus

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will celebrate its ninth-annual First Amendment Day on Tuesday, Sept. 26. This campus-wide, daylong event is designed to both celebrate the First Amendment and explore its role in the lives of Carolina students. Students and other members of the university community will read from banned books, sing controversial music, and discuss the public university’s special role as a marketplace of ideas and the need to be tolerant when others exercise their rights.

Events will take place across campus, including at the law school. Please see the individual event announcements for specific times and locations.  For more information, visit
