Free Expression and UNE's 任务

在一个, we believe that free expression, 开放的调查, and respectful 辩论 are crucial to our mission — supporting healthy people, 健康的社区, 一个健康的星球. In accordance with these guiding principles, we cultivate a lively and robust marketplace of ideas that empowers members of our community to assess information, draw rational conclusions, and use that knowledge to build creative, effective solutions in a troubled world.

At the core of this belief is intellectual humility — a recognition that we all have a lot to learn from others with different knowledge and perspectives. This is true even if sometimes the process makes us feel uncomfortable or we encounter ideas with which we passionately disagree. The pursuit of knowledge is a journey. 发现, 辩论, 分歧, and a willingness to change one’s mind are what make the journey so rewarding.
