Relevant Excerpt

Old Dominion University strongly supports the exercise of free speech on campus and is committed to the position that displaying works of art represents both freedom of expression and a true form of education. It is of equal concern to the University, however, that certain works of art - which could be judged as offensive by some - not be placed in locations where individuals of varying ages, representing a diversity of creeds, cultures and perspectives, either pass or congregate. In those instances, it is more appropriate to place the art in a location where access is by deliberate choice.
