To facilitate robust debate and the free exchange of ideas, the University
has established high visibility areas on campus as “Speaker’s Corners” that may be used by any
person including by non-students and other campus guests. This use may be without permission
from the University so long as the area has not been previously reserved or scheduled for a
particular function, no sound amplification is used, and the participants do not violate other
University policies. Designated Speaker’s Corners include:
a) the edge of the Union Plaza adjacent to the Grove,
b) the area surrounding the flagpole in the Lyceum Circle, and
c) the plaza in front of Fulton Chapel.
Planned or spontaneous demonstrations, meetings, or assemblies may be conducted in those appropriate areas of the campus which are regularly available to the public, provided such demonstrations, meetings, or other assemblies meet the following conditions: They: … d. Are conducted only with specific authorization from the Vice President for Student Affairs or other appropriate University official when held in University-owned or -leased facilities; and e. Are confined to the PWL Jones Practice Facility when conducted without specific authorization.
The area adjacent to the southwest corner of Ferguson
Chapel, not to exceed fifty (50) feet in any direction, is hereby designated as
a limited public forum. On a first-come, first-served basis individuals or
organizations may utilize this designated forum for free speech purposes
without registration, 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week. However, no
amplification equipment may be used and no structure(s) may be erected.
All other areas of the campus must be scheduled for such use and
approved by the university.
