U remains committed to free speech on campus


As a leading research and teaching institution, the University of Utah is committed to the principle of free speech, as articulated in the First Amendment, because it fuels the advancement of new ideas and new knowledge, which is at the core of our mission. The debates that arise from the exchange of diverse viewpoints are a fundamental part of the intellectual journey of scholarship. As a public campus, we uphold freedom of expression and the right of speakers and audiences to be free from undue disruption and interference as protected by the Constitution. We also adhere to state laws that prescribe how free speech shall be facilitated.
