Relevant Excerpt

The University is a community where the means of seeking to establish truth are open discussion and free discourse. It thrives on debate and dissent, which must be protected as a matter of academic freedom within the University, quite apart from the question of constitutional rights. The University also recognizes that a critically engaged, activist student body contributes to NYU’s academic mission.  Free inquiry, free expression, and free association enhances academic freedom and intellectual engagement.
