As conflicts, political polarization, and culture wars spread around the world, scholars, students, and universities often find themselves on the front lines. Join Rob Quinn, Executive Director of Scholars at Risk (SAR) and host of the Free to Think podcast, to discuss why attacks on higher education happen, why they matter, and what we can do about them.
