Speech & Expression Policy
Guidelines for maintaining discourse in our campus community
The University teaches by being what it is
"Free speech" and discourse are central to the life of the University
More speech is better.
The tradition of Georgetown University demands that we live up to these ideals
Violation of these principles have consequences
What does this mean in practice?
Groups may plan events that challenge the beliefs and values of others
Red Square is an agreed-upon location for free speech and expression of ideas
In other locations, free speech is governed by "time, place, and manner"
We expect speech to be claimed and not anonymous
Events that are considered controversial can expect to have a designated protest area
University leaders work closely with groups planning controversial events
