The following are excerpts from the University policy governing the appearance of non-University
speakers sponsored by student organization(s):
As an institution of higher learning devoted to the search for truth in a democratic society,
the University is dedicated to the maintenance and expression of a spirit of free inquiry. For
its students, accordingly, it promotes the development of an atmosphere of open exchange
and of conditions conducive to critical evaluation of divergent points of view.
The University also recognizes and accepts a responsibility to ensure that such inquiry is
conducted in a manner which furthers the educational objectives of the institution; namely,
the open-minded, objective evaluation and dissemination of knowledge.
