October Buckeye Justice Forum and Women LEADing Ohio Programs
Greetings Raymond,

This month, the LEAD Ohio Foundation is proud to host the Buckeye Justice Forum Speaker Series and Women LEADing Ohio’s Vote-Her Informational Sessions!

Join the Buckeye Justice Forum for our next Speaker Series: The Future of Higher Education in Ohio.

Hear from our esteemed speakers:

  • Matthew Ahn, Cleveland State University College of Law
  • Dr. Samuel Nelson, University of Toledo Department of Political Science and Public Administration




Our Higher Education discussion will center on:

  • Current issues in the relationship between state and local governments and institutions of higher education, focusing on changes around curriculum control, academic freedom, and the nature and scope of political discourse
  • “Divisive concepts” legislation, the influence of free speech litigation, and the early impacts of “intellectual diversity centers”
  • An overview of current legislation impacting higher education institutions, the shifting landscape of academic freedom and free speech on campuses, and what we can expect to see next in Ohio’s state legislature and state courts around these issues

This virtual seminar will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, October 31 from 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm, and is pending approval for one hour’s worth of CLE credit.
