Policy on Campus Free Speech: Speech, Assembly, and Public Expression

Relevant excerpt

Students and faculty may assemble and engage in spontaneous expressive activity as long as such activity is not unlawful and does not materially and substantially disrupt the functioning of the University, subject to the requirements of the Free Speech Laws.

Subject to the terms of this Policy and related University policies, expressive activities, such as protests or demonstrations, are permitted in outdoor areas of the University campus so long as the conduct is lawful and does not materially and substantially disrupt the normal operations and functions of the University or infringe on the rights of other members of the University community, except that no protests or demonstrations are permitted inside University buildings without the express written authorization from the University. Any use of amplification equipment on the outdoor areas of campus must have prior written clearance through the Environmental Health and Safety Department and will be permitted only if there is no interference or disruption of any academic or other University activities.
