The open exchange of information, opinions, and ideas between students
is an essential element of the campus experience. These policies are
intended to protect the interests of all students as well as other members
of the university community. These policies presume that students are
generally free to engage in freedom of expression activities in those
outdoor areas of campus that are common and accessible to all students
(such as park-like areas and sidewalks) without the need of prior approval
of the university.
