University Response to Speaking Request

Kent State University has responded to a request from associates of Richard Spencer, who asked to speak on campus May 4,  that we are unable to accommodate his request. The weeks of April 30 – May 12 are always an exceptionally busy time on our campus, with numerous activities marking the end of our academic year.
Kent State values respectful dialogue from all points of view. Consistent with our core values, we encourage open dialogue, freedom of expression and respectful discourse in an inclusive environment.
