Summary

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. These procedures establish 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.

Process

To ensure the availability of space on University property, University community members and members of the general public planning an Expressive Activity event or activity in any appropriate forum are encouraged to contact the University’s Conference Services and University Center Operation’s Office at least 3 days in advance of any planned Expressive Activity and provide the date, time and duration of the proposed event or activity, and the number of participants reasonably expected to attend. Such notice is encouraged so that the individual or group can be informed whether the desired location will be available prior to their arrival on campus. University’s Conference Services and University Center Operation’s Office may be contacted via email at conferences@esu.edu or via phone at (570) 422-2747.

To the extent feasible, the University encourages University Community Members to provide advance notice to the Conference Services and University Center Operation’s Office so that they may provide guidance and planning to ensure a safe and successful event. Conference Services and University Center Operations can also assist the responsible individual or group in identifying alternative locations if the desired location is already reserved in a manner consistent with this policy.
