Free speech and peaceful assembly are rights of citizens and are fundamental to the University as a center for open inquiry in the search for knowledge and insight. The University is strongly committed to the protection of these rights for all members of the campus community. However, these rights bring with them a concurrent obligation to maintain a campus atmosphere conducive to scholarly pursuits and respect for the rights of all individuals. Individuals engaged in assemblies, demonstrations, and similar expressions of First Amendment rights (herein referred to generically as “assemblies”) may not infringe on the rights of others or disrupt essential operations of the University.
Assemblies requiring no Services may take place without any prior notification by the sponsors and/or organizers.
