Oberlin College, in its traditions and as an academic institution, is devoted to free and open inquiry. Therefore, it is important that freedom of speech and freedom of expression be guaranteed to individuals and groups to express whatever views they wish, so long as they do not interfere with the rights of others.

Academic institutions exist for the transmission of knowledge, the
pursuit of truth, the development of students, and the general well-
being of society. Free inquiry and free expression are indispensable
to the attainment of these goals. As members of the academic
community, students should be encouraged to develop the capacity
for critical judgment and to engage in a sustained and independent
search for truth.
