DePauw University exists for the transmission of knowledge, the nurturing of integrity and the cultural development of its students. To attain these goals, free inquiry and free expression are imperative.
3. Freedom of association: students are free and, in fact, encouraged to organize and join associations that promote their common interests.
4. Freedom of assembly, inquiry and expression: students are free to examine and discuss all questions of interest to them and to express their opinions publicly and privately. Students are free to support causes in any orderly manner, including organized protests that do not disturb the normal and essential functions of the University.
5. Student publications and the student press are financially and editorially separate from the University. The DePauw, the student newspaper, remains a forum for open student discussion on campus issues.
