Policy and Regulations

Policies and regulations provide the framework of how freedom of expression and free speech is protected and can be exercised on the University of Oregon campuses, in classrooms, public spaces and within work spaces.

 University Policies


The university strives to balance the right to dissent with the right to be heard, the right to speak one’s mind with the right to listen. Established guidelines protect the right to free speech, while ensuring that opposing views may also be expressed. The university applies its rules and expectations in a manner neutral to the viewpoints expressed.
