Tulane University’s purpose is to create, communicate and conserve knowledge in order to enrich the capacity of individuals, organizations and communities to think, to learn and to act and lead with integrity and wisdom. In service to this purpose, Tulane recognizes the critically important historical and current role civil disobedience serves in evolving our democracy. From global, national, state and local human rights to specific Tulane polices, procedures, and practices, the act of protest and demonstration has led to our collective evolution. Therefore, we are committed to creating and protecting an environment in which a variety of ideas can be freely expressed, critically examined, and made with respect for the dignity and freedom of others.
These Demonstration Guidelines are intended to protect the rights of those involved in the demonstration, others in the University community, and the University from disruption to teaching, research, administrative procedures, or other activities.
