As an academic community, Virginia Tech values the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and does not intend to restrict the exercise of these rights. However, all members of the university community are responsible for respecting conditions that preserve the freedom to learn. Protected activities do not violate university policy unless they interfere with university functions, violate the rights of others, or otherwise break the law.

To learn more about speech on campus, including related campus policies, or how to report an incident of disruption of constitutionally protected speech on campus, or to find printable materials regarding speech on campus, visit the Virginia Tech Speech on Campus webpage.
