Americans believe students should hear diverse views

Americans of both political parties believe that college students should hear from people with a diverse range of opinions, according to a poll conducted by HarrisX for The Deseret News.

Colleges should invite speakers with a range of views, said 86 percent of Democrats and 85 percent of Republicans.

On the question of whether students should listen to controversial speakers with diverse viewpoints, a majority of Democrats, 59 percent, agreed. Among Republicans, 73 percent also agreed.

There was wide support for some activities to protest speakers with whom students disagree, such as petitions or rallies.

But most Americans believe that students who interrupt speakers (78 percent) or shout them down (79 percent) should be disciplined.
