Category: Advertised Commitments to Free Expression School: Montana State University Statement Rating: Green Last updated: August 24, 2018

Relevant excerpt

MSU supports and encourages diverse points of view, though they may sometimes seem distasteful or offensive, as this is the nature of the University’s educational responsibility and is safeguarded by the freedom of expression. The acceptance of diversity is a fundamental tenet of the Land Grant University system and is instrumental to the creation of new discourses and the weighing of different views.
MSU recognizes the First Amendment rights to expression.  These rights include individual and group expression activities including but not limited to:

  • Speaking,
  • Assembling,
  • Demonstrating,
  • Displaying signs,
  • Pamphleteering, and
  • Political campaigning.
