Freedom of Expression at the University at Buffalo

Release Date: May 1, 2017

The University at Buffalo strives to create an environment in which diverse opinions can be expressed and heard.  As a public university, it is a fundamental value of UB that all members of the campus community and their invited guests have a right to peacefully express their views and opinions, regardless of whether others may disagree with those expressions. This includes the right of protesters to oppose the views or opinions of others, but not in such a way as to limit or prevent the speaker's freedom of expression or interfere with university operations.

The university does not take a position on the views expressed by those who visit our campus. However, the university requires all groups using campus space to abide by university guidelines and state laws concerning the exhibition and management of public events.
