Relevant Excerpt

Because the rights of free speech and peaceable assembly are fundamental to the democratic process, Stanford firmly supports the rights of all members of the University community to express their views or to protest against actions and opinions with which they disagree.


It  should be understood that while  the above are examples of extraordinarily  disruptive  behavior, the application  of the Policy also takes situational  factors into  consideration. Thus, for  example, conduct appropriate at a political  rally  might  constitute a violation  of the Policy on Campus Disruptions if  it occurred within  a classroom.
