Relevant excerpt

Students of the University of Dayton enjoy the full expression of their thoughts, positions, and opinions on all contemporary and intellectual issues while at the University. This expression includes, but is not limited to, the freedom to communicate, dissent, assemble, demonstrate, and distribute literature in support of particular positions. The University upholds this freedom of expression and inquiry as a primary support for the education of its students. It recognizes that at times such expression may be controversial and may provoke criticism from academic, civic, and religious communities. In upholding this freedom for its students, the University requires that the expression of opinion not interrupt or disrupt the primary teaching, learning, research, administrative functions of the University or any other activity or proceeding on campus which is generally accepted as a legitimate University function.
