Preamble to the Curriculum

By August 28, 2013

Only peaceful demonstrations are appropriate
in an academic community and the Trustees
are confident that no member or group of the
Institute community will go beyond the bounds
set by these regulations. In order to maintain
the safety and to safeguard the interests of all
members of the Institute community, any
group or individual planning a demonstration
must submit an Application For Approval of
Peaceful Demonstration to the Dean of
Students Office at least seven (7) days prior to
the proposed demonstration date and include
its proposed location and the object of the
intended protest, or other purpose. If a
situation emerges for which a seven day notice
is neither appropriate nor practical, the Dean
of Students shall exercise reasonable discretion
by reviewing the application to reasonably
assure student safety and to safeguard the
interests of all members of the Rensselaer
community.
