STICKS AND STONES CAN BREAK MY BONES BUT WORDS CAN NEVER HURT ME

“Free speech” is central to the life of a university. Great care must be taken not to inhibit open discussion, debate, and expression of personal opinion and differences of opinion—particularly in the classroom.
UAA is committed to free speech. Nothing in this publication should be considered in any way limiting or restricting the existing legal right to speak freely and openly.
Ideas that may seem offensive or controversial, even to the majority, are permitted if they are expressed in accordance with legal principles. The University will apply the norms of “time, place, and manner” in governing the expression of ideas and sharing of information that is the very life of the University.
