Policy Statement

East Stroudsburg University supports the rights of University students, faculty, staff and groups recognized by the Student Government Association (SGA) and/or University departments, as well as external groups and the general public to engage in protected speech and assembly. Protected speech and assembly include demonstrations, marches, picketing, leafleting and protesting (“Expressive Activity”) in public areas on campus. Such Expressive Activity is permitted on campus so long as the activity is not unlawful and does not unreasonably interfere with University operations. This policy establishes guidelines to facilitate engagement in Expressive Activities that do not unreasonably disrupt University operations, violate the protected speech activity of others, or risk the destruction of University property. This policy also identifies the Designated Area(s) for Expressive Activity for all recognized student groups, faculty, University Departments and staff as well as the general-public and non-recognized (by SGA) student groups and organizations. Reasonable and content-neutral rules for the time, place and manner of expression and assembly are a legitimate way to ensure the orderly conduct of the University community.
