Category: Protest and Demonstration Policies School: University of Rhode Island Statement Rating: Yellow Last updated: September 28, 2017

Relevant excerpt

The University community believes in the right, and is committed to the protection of all peaceful, non-disruptive forms of protest including mass demonstrations, pickets, and rallies. The campus must be open to a free exchange of ideas; therefore, all members of the community and guest are expected to conduct dialogues with dignity and courtesy.

Visitors to the campus, students, staff, or faculty wishing to publicly address the University community at other than a University-sponsored event must first check with the Memorial Union scheduling office to ensure that the time, place, and manner of the address does not interfere with normal University functioning.
