Plans and Procedures Campus Disturbance or Demonstration

In general, peaceful, non-obstructive demonstrations should not be interrupted. Demonstrators should not be obstructed or provoked and efforts should be made to conduct University business as normal as possible.

A demonstration should not be disrupted unless one or more of the following conditions exist as a result of the demonstration:

  • Interference with normal operations of the University
  • Prevention of access to office, building, or other University facilities
  • Threat of physical harm to people
  • Threat or actual damage to University property

If any of these conditions do exist, the UPD will ask the demonstrators to terminate the disruptive activity and inform them that failure to discontinue the specified action will result in disciplinary action or immediate arrest.
