Relevant Excerpt

To further the effectiveness of their event, organizations and other groups of students organizing a protest or demonstration are encouraged to make advance arrangements with the University Police.
When possible, a notification to hold a protest or demonstration should be submitted via email at least 48 hours before the start of the event to ensure its successful execution.


If called upon, the professional staff will work actively to preserve an environment of spirited and open discourse and debate, allowing for the opportunity to have all participants contribute to intellectual exchange and full participation in an event. In instances of disruptive behavior or violations of University policies, the University Police will be notified and take appropriate action.
