Effective Date of Policy:
January 12, 2022
Daemen College deeply values freedom of expression and encourages all members of the College community to engage in thoughtful discourse, debate, and the exchange of ideas. The very nature of a college environment challenges members of its community continually to question the world in which we live, and to think critically and creatively in an effort to enrich our lives and our community. The College does not guarantee, or even endeavor to provide, a campus environment free of expressions that may offend currently held paradigms; however, the College does retain the right to limit expressions that are antithetical to the values of the Mission of Daemen College or that violate the Student Handbook Code of Conduct. The student newspaper is additionally regulated by the College’s affiliation with the Associated Collegiate Press and their attendant guidelines. See the STUDENT DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE in this Handbook to appeal decisions made that limit freedom of expression, and/or other disciplinary decisions made by the College.
Purpose of Policy
To create and maintain an equitable environment where students have the optimal opportunity to succeed academically, personally, and professionally and where any and all Daemen College Community members feel safe, valued, and respected.
