The Regulation of Speech and Harassment subcommittee will review and make recommendations to address:
- Has the university appropriately promulgated principles and regulations that address free speech on campus as well as prohibit discrimination and harassment?
- Are the Campus Code of Conduct or other policies the right vehicle(s) for establishing such regulations and principles?
- Are we sanctioning discrimination, harassment and related misconduct appropriately? Are enforcement mechanisms fair and clear?
- What legal mechanisms are available to the university to prevent, address and counter situations in which protected expression on campus is harmful to those vulnerable to its effects?
