    “The Constitutional Issues in Higher Education (CIHE) Symposium is dedicated to examining constitutional concerns and influences that intersect with colleges and universities with a primary focus on the First Amendment. Institutions of higher education play a central role in educating, impacting, and developing not only enrolled students, but the communities in which these institutions are located. Contributing to the production of active, informed, and engaged members of society is a role that colleges and universities have undertaken since their inception, but requires continual re-commitment and reconsideration.”
