PG-65: Campus Free Speech Protection: Public Forums

Relevant excerpt

(e) Public Forums:

1. The generally accessible, open, outdoor areas of campus are maintained as traditional public forums for University students and faculty to express their views.
2. Freedom of speech and expression of students and faculty is not limited to particular areas of the campus or “free speech zones.”
3. There shall be no restrictions on the time, place, and manner of student and faculty speech that occurs in the outdoor areas of campus or is protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, except that administrative restrictions may exist that are reasonable, justified without reference to the content of the regulated speech, narrowly tailored to serve a compelling governmental interest, and limited to provide ample alternative options for the communication of the information.
