3335-5-06 Guest speakers.

It is the policy of the university to foster a spirit of free inquiry and to encourage the timely discussion of a broad range of issues, provided that the views expressed are stated openly and are subject to critical evaluation. Within our prevailing standards of decency and honesty, this policy shall be construed to mean that no topic or issue is too controversial for intelligent discussion on the campuses. Restraints on free inquiry should be held to that minimum which is consistent with preserving an organized society in which change is accomplished by peaceful, democratic means. To this end, registered student organizations, faculty, and others entitled to sponsor a meeting involving the use of university facilities (see rule 3335-13-03 of the Administrative Code) may invite guest speakers to the campuses. The sponsors must take reasonable steps necessary to ensure that the meeting is conducted in an orderly manner.
