Pepperdine University dean promotes ‘viewpoint diversity’ in the wake of nationwide campus protests

Pepperdine University School of Public Policy’s Pete Peterson offered some optimism for free speech in the wake of ongoing campus protests and hostility against opposing viewpoints.

A recent campus protest targeted Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett as she spoke at the University of Minnesota. A group of about ten protesters attempted to shout down Barrett before they were escorted out by campus police.

This followed several protests throughout the country in favor of the Palestinian people following the Hamas attack against Israel earlier this month, leading to many Jewish students expressing fears of going to class.

Peterson spoke to Fox News Digital about the importance of what his school calls “viewpoint diversity” to counter this pattern.
