Freedom of Expression Operating Procedure

Relevant excerpt

Expressive activities are allowed on all outdoor areas of campus subject to the reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions set forth in this Operating Procedure as well as all applicable state and federal laws. The campus shall not create free speech zones or other designated outdoor areas of campus outside of which expressive activities are prohibited. The campus maintains a position of neutrality as to the content of any protected speech.

Members of the campus community who want to engage in noncommercial expressive activities may do so freely in the outdoor areas of campus so long as that member’s conduct is 1) not unlawful, 2) does not materially and substantially disrupt the functioning of a state supported institution and 3) does not materially and substantially disrupt another person’s expressive activity.
