Speech and Expression

‚ÄčInside and outside of the classroom, DePaul values inquiry and expression. DePaul has articulated its commitment to speech and expression in the Guiding Principles on Speech and Expression‚Äč.

DePaul encourages students to operate student media, and will provide support and advisors in this endeavor. It should be understood that supporting these efforts in no way implies DePaul approval or endorsement of the views expressed in student media.

DePaul University encourages student organizations to sponsor guest speakers whose presentation will contribute to the role of the university as a forum for intellectual discussion, debate, investigation and/or artistic expression. Through this forum, speakers bring to the University an opportunity for students to hear and discuss opposing viewpoints on a wide range of issues. It should be understood that providing a forum in no way implies DePaul approval or endorsement of the views expressed by the sponsored speaker. A statement indicating that the presence of the speaker on campus does not imply that DePaul has approved or endorsed the views expressed by the speaker must be included in all publications for and advertising about any speaker event.
