Relevant Excerpt

The University of Tulsa exists to promote the academic and social development of its students, the transmission of knowledge, the pursuit of truth and a sense of responsibility toward self and society.

A deep respect for the fundamental rights of expression, assembly and petition is indispensable to the attainment of these goals.


The rights of free inquiry and free expression, both public and private, are essential to the learning process and must be protected by the responsible and mutually supporting efforts of all segments of the University community. These rights shall not be infringed upon.
