Faculty, staff, and students are free to take positions on public controversies and to engage in protected expressive activity in outdoor areas of the campus, and to spontaneously and contemporaneously assemble, speak, and distribute literature.
The University provides forums for the expression of ideas and opinions, such as the following:
1. Traditional public forums include the University’s public streets, sidewalks, and similar common areas. These areas are generally available for non-amplified expressive activity, planned or spontaneous, for the individual or small group at any time without the need for reservation or prior approval, unless the use of the space is already scheduled.
2. Designated public forums include other parts of the campus that may become temporarily available for non-amplified expressive activity as designated by the University.
