Demonstrations and Mass Gatherings
Students or other individuals may express their views and make their opinions known through orderly demonstration. The primary responsibility of the university is to maintain effective conduct of academic affairs and to preserve the dignity of public events and ceremonies.
Campus demonstrations are to be:
- Scheduled a minimum of 48 hours in advance with the Office of Public Safety.
- Conducted in an orderly manner with areas used to be left in a state identical to that which it was in prior to usage.
- Non-interfering in any way with vehicular or pedestrian traffic.
- Non-interfering with classes, scheduled meetings, ceremonies, activities or other educational or operational processes of the university.
- May not be held within university buildings or any outdoor facility when university functions are in progress.
- Individuals or groups with a past history of interrupting the academic processes of the university will be denied a reservation to hold a demonstration on campus.
Demonstrations include but are not limited to such activities as picketing, distribution of leaflets and the presence of persons for the general purpose of registering sentiment and opinion.
Participation in mass gatherings that are considered to be disorderly or unlawful will be subject to possible disciplinary actions as severe as suspension from the university. It must be understood that the university considers anyone, whether actively involved or spectating, to be a participant subject to full enforcement of the law and university regulations when he or she is in violation of the laws or policies as an individual or as a member of a crowd.
