Category: Protest and Demonstration Policies School: California State University – Channel Islands Statement Rating: Yellow Last updated: July 31, 2017

Relevant excerpt

It is recognized that registered students may exercise the constitutionally protected rights of free expression, speech, and assembly on campus.  In support of this statement two free speech zones have been established to accommodate such activity:

  • In front of Ojai Hall
  • The lawn west of the intersection of Santa Barbara and Ventura Streets, adjacent to El Dorado Hall.

While it is preferable that registered students utilize the free speech zones to engage in free speech/expression, they may exercise these rights in other areas on campus that are generally open to the public.

Picketing or demonstrating in an orderly manner or distributing literature outside University buildings is acceptable with the appropriate approval from the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students office.
