Advocacy at CU with Alex Loyd, University of Colorado, Office of University Counsel
Working at the science-policy interface these days, many faculty, staff and graduate students have questions about the rules and conventions on what is appropriate advocacy within their roles at CU. Alex Loyd will map out the legal contours of these considerations and answer questions that participants may have. We will then discuss advocacy and activism more broadly in contemporary times.
