Occasionally, a student organization may wish to host a controversial speaker or event. If you are considering hosting such an event, please contact the Director of OSA (email@example.com) to plan accordingly. This will usually involve conversations with several offices including OSA, The Office of Public Affairs, Building Services, The Office of the Vice President for Student Life, and Yale Police.
Yale's Law School's Guidance regarding free expression and Peaceable Assembly for Students is available here.
Organizers and participants in demonstrations must be aware that certain individuals or groups may purposefully attempt to incite and disrupt what would otherwise be peaceful and civil protests.Organizers and participants are urged to engage in careful planning, to utilize university resources, and maintain situational awareness during a demonstration in order to address changing or unexpected circumstances.
