The mission of the Tully Center for Free Speech is to educate university students and the public about the important value of free speech. Through education, resources and research, the Center will strive to contribute to the discussion of media law issues in New York State, the nation, and the world.
The Tully Center for Free Speech began in Fall, 2006, at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, one of the nation’s premier schools of mass communications. The School prepares students for careers ranging from print journalism to broadcast journalism to online communication and from advertising and public relations to photography, graphics and television production. All majors are required to take a course in media law and the new Tully Center will bring in noted speakers and resources to enhance those classes.
