Freedom of Expression Policy

Relevant excerpt

The university setting is one that welcomes and promotes intellectual inquiry, vigorous and respectful civil discourse and the freedom of expression of diverse ideas and points of view. Students are expected to respect the expressions of others, even when it makes them feel challenged or uncomfortable. It is within a civil and respectful community, like this University, that freedom of expression, debate and the exploration of competing views can best thrive. 

Freedom of expression includes all forms of speech including, but not limited to, debates, speeches, symposia, posting of signs, posting on social media, petitioning, information dissemination, the formation of groups, participation in activities and the invitation of guest speakers to address the University Community.
