UW-La Crosse Invites Former Porn Performer

November 7, 2018
 
 

The University of Wisconsin at La Crosse invited Nina Hartley, a former pornographic actress, to speak on campus last week about sexuality and adult media, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

About 70 students attended Hartley’s talk, which Joe Gow, university chancellor, described as “essential, and gets to the heart of free expression.” Hartley spoke on campus the week following Free Speech Week, a series of events dedicated to highlighting a new UW System policy that protects free expression.

The university paid Hartley $5,000 from the chancellor’s discretionary funds, made up of interest earned on revenue from auxiliary services including dining services, parking fees and residence halls. Taxpayer dollars did not contribute to Hartley’s speaker fee.
