Free Speech at UC

The University of Cincinnati embraces the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives of its community members and is committed to creating a community that values the contributions of all its members. For that reason, the University believes that the right of expression is as necessary as the right of inquiry and that both must be preserved as essential to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge and truth.  The University is committed to safeguarding the freedom of expression, but this commitment does not extend to expression that is not protected by the First Amendment.
