    Speech Code Category: Protest and Demonstration Policies
    Last updated: December 5, 2018

    The “Public Areas” of Campus mean all Outdoor Areas. The “Outdoor Areas” mean outside areas generally accessible to the majority of students, administrators, faculty, and staff such as grassy areas, walkways, or other similar common areas, and do not include areas where access is restricted. The Public Areas of campus are deemed by State law as traditional public forums and are open on the same terms to any speaker. On Public Areas, students and faculty may assemble, distribute literature, and engage in spontaneous expressive activity as long as such activity is not unlawful and does not materially and substantially disrupt the functioning of the University.

    If an individual or group of individuals attracts a group of 20 or more persons, then a representative from the group is encouraged to contact the Student Development Office or University Police as soon as circumstances reasonably permit. The University reserves the right to direct a group of 20 or more persons to another available Public Area in order to ensure the safety of campus members, to provide for proper crowd control, and to limit disruption of the academic and other operations of the University. Any relocation must not be based on the content or viewpoint of the expression.
