Relevant Excerpt

As a state institution, Florida Atlantic University (“FAU” or “University”) must uphold the protections guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as the Constitution of the State of Florida. Free speech, free expression, and peaceable assembly are basic to the exchange of ideas and beliefs on campus. Academic progress and freedom flourish when the rights of free expression are assured through public debate and discourse on public affairs and social issues.
