2017 ACUI Live Program: Student Protest on the College Campus

Throughout history, colleges and universities have served as a forum for the exchange of ideas and free expression; to provide an environment for students to present their views and beliefs on a variety of topics. A common method of expression for students are protests. In order to embrace the important concepts of free speech and expression, it is beneficial for universities to create specific policies in these areas and guide staff on how to properly respond. In this webinar we will discuss different protests and challenging situations at our own institution, while also sharing our policies related to freedom of speech, picketing and assembly, and designating public forums. This will also be an opportunity to gain an insight on how to create policies and procedures on these topics at your own institutions.
