Bech-Loughlin First Amendment Center

The Bech-Loughlin First Amendment Center, founded in 2020, is dedicated to advancing the discussion, education and scholarship of the First Amendment. The rights secured by the First Amendment include the liberties of religion, speech, and the press, as well as the freedoms to peacefully assemble and petition the government.  The Center, led by Director Steven T. Collis, provides opportunities for deliberation about these rights and the controversies related to them, in forms that include conferences, scholarship, lectures, conversations, and debates. Among the center’s main projects will be a new experiential education opportunity, the Law and Religion Clinic.
