2012-02-02 by News, Sports, and Art

Join us for a debate by the award-winning UAA Speech and Debate team, followed by a faculty response panel and a facilitated public discussion on this important and timely topic.

00:00:15 – Introduction, Libby Roderick
00:02:43 – Speech & Debate Coach, Steve Johnson
00:10:10 – Debate
00:40:18 – Faculty Panel
01:10:37 – Public Discussion

In 2010, the Supreme Court ruled Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission to uphold the rights of corporations to make unlimited political expenditures under the First Amendment. Since that time, there have been several calls for a Constitutional amendment to abolish “corporate personhood,” calls which have intensified recently. This event is part of a series sponsored by the UAA Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence since 2003 to offer the Anchorage community access to university resources as a basis for discussions of policies and issues affecting its future.
