Rice University General Policy No.
PICKETING, DEMONSTRATIONS, AND
NON-UNIVERSITY SPONSORED MEETINGS
One of the University's functions is to provide a forum for the
orderly expression and discussion of various points of view.
Members of the University Community, acting as individuals and not
in the name of the University or any of its component parts, have
the right to express their opinions, to picket, and to hold
demonstrations or meetings on campus so long as such activities do
not violate local, state, or federal laws, and so long as
University functions are not disrupted and access to any part of
the campus is not impeded. The University reserves the right to
limit the locations on campus where picketing, demonstrations or
meetings may be held when such action is necessary for the
preservation of order and safety.
Persons outside the Rice community do not have the right to use
the campus for picketing, demonstrations, meetings, or similar
activities without the prior written permission.
