The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, supports the rights of students and other members of the campus community to express freely their views for or against actions and opinions with which they agree or disagree.

The university also recognizes a concurrent obligation to develop policies and procedures which safeguard this freedom of speech but which, at the same time, will maintain an atmosphere on the campus conducive to academic work, will preserve the dignity and seriousness of university ceremonies and public exercises, and will respect the private rights of all individuals.
