Within the context of established college policies, peaceful assembly and picketing are recognized as legitimate methods of personal expression. However, protest need not and must not take the form of violence, destruction, damage, physical abuse or confrontation that substitutes physical force for orderly efforts to attain one’s ends. It should be remembered that freedom to protest is protected only so long as it does not interfere with the rights and freedoms of others. Students who violate this regulation will be referred to the vice president for student affairs for immediate action. Depending upon the degree of involvement, destruction of property, etc., the student may be warned, placed on disciplinary probation, suspended or permanently expelled.
