Free Speech Policy

August 28, 2013

B. Freedom of Speech and Inquiry in a Catholic Institution
Intellectual inquiry and pursuit of truth is at the core of the institution’s Catholic tradition and values. As such, students are encouraged to:

1. express their views in a reasonable manner;

2. examine and discuss all questions of interest to them;

3. take seriously the right to learn in the spirit of free inquiry; and

4. be informed of the purposes of all research in which they are expected or encouraged to participate, either as subject or researchers.

All students and recognized groups have the right to hold public meetings and, with prior approval from the Division of Student Affairs, may post authorized notices on approved bulletin boards on the University campus.
