Relevant Excerpt

Brooklyn College supports the right of students, faculty, and staff to peaceably demonstrate, provided they do not disrupt the normal educational operation of the campus. For example, clip boarding and leafleting may take place on campus, so long as it does not disrupt the educational environment. The college may reasonably restrict the time, place, and manner in which activities occur on campus. Persons may not block corridors or entrances to any area. They may not block or otherwise interfere with the free flow of pedestrian, vehicular, bicycle, or other traffic. Use of amplified sound will not be permitted without prior approval from the vice president for student affairs, and may not disrupt a conference, meeting, or class.
