Rooted in the University of Chicago Principles of Free Expression, the Parrhesia Program offers an innovative curriculum in the theory and practice of public discourse and deliberation. Parrhesia, to speak freely and openly, signifies our commitment to open and vigorous civic deliberation and dialogue. This curriculum is open to pre-college students through a series of courses offered within the Summer Session Immersion catalog and through this one-week enrichment program. The one-week Parrhesia Pre-College Forum on Freedom of Expression aims to introduce pre-college students, who are earlier in their academic journey, to the fundamental principles and practices that prepare students to communicate in a variety of contexts. Course assignments and exercises actively engage students in the rhetorical process of argument construction and presentation preparation and delivery. Selected participants will also be tasked with serving as ambassadors and changemakers by sharing the principles of discourse and freedom of expression in their home communities. The program will be hosted on-campus, and program participants must reside in campus housing for the duration of the program. This course is being offered at no cost to selected participants, and participants who require financial assistance for travel to and from campus are eligible to receive additional
