In recent years, Roger Williams University has experienced a great deal of debate regarding some of the most controversial political and cultural issues that are confronting contemporary America society. Many of the speakers representing the various viewpoints on these issues have been criticized as espousing either a left - or right - wing agenda, or as being too inflammatory to propel genuine civil discourse. RWU and the Commission on Civil Discourse have attempted to remedy this situation by bringing a wide variety of diverse speakers to campus, including the president of the Campaign for Working Families, Gary Bauer.
