five days notice

August 28, 2013

Effective as of June 12, 2012, the University of Cincinnati’s Expressive Activity Policy is suspended by court order, as is any regulation of student speech found in the Use of Facilities Policy Manual and the MainStreet Student Event Guide. The president of the university has directed as follows: * Students who wish to engage in any expressive activity in groups of 25 or fewer, including to soliciting signatures on petitions, may do so, without any prior notice to the university, in the Free Speech Area and the open campus areas, plazas, and sidewalks. * Students wishing to engage in any expressive activity in groups of more than 25: (a) are asked to call Campus Scheduling…at least 24 hours in advance, and (b) may conduct activities in the same locations, except that the university reserves the ability, on a case-by-case basis, to change the location of a very large activity (groups of 5,000 or more), but only to the extent necessary to ensure the safety and security of the university community.
