Demonstration and Disturbances
Not all demonstrations are unlawful. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that certain activity is protected under the U.S. Constitution. However, any demonstration on university property that interferes with the educational function of the institution or in which violence, property damage, or other unlawful behavior occurs is unlawful.
If you have a question about whether a demonstration is unlawful, call University Police at 765-285-1111.
If a disturbance appears to threaten the safety of faculty, staff, or students:
- Immediately call University Police at 911 or 765-285-1111.
- Lock doors as possible and appropriate to isolate the disturbance.
- Take steps to protect your own safety and the safety of other faculty, staff, and students.
- Encourage people to leave the area.
