Any campus organization participating in a demonstration must file three copies of the registration form in the office of the president of the college four days in advance of the demonstration.
The following regulations apply to authorized campus demonstrations:
- Only organizations recognized by the college may sponsor demonstrations on college property.
- Picketing is not permitted inside buildings.
- Outside picketing must not be carried on in a manner that interferes with entrance traffic or the normal flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic.
- The form for registering campus demonstrations is available from the Student Development Office.
Unauthorized or Disorderly Assembly (Demonstrations)
All assemblies or demonstrations on the campus must have prior registration with the office of the president of the college. Students who participate in or incite a riot, a disturbance, or a disorderly assembly are subject to suspension or dismissal. When an unauthorized campus assembly of students has been requested to disperse by the president or other designated officer, those refusing to comply shall be subject to immediate suspension and/or dismissal and to the trespass laws of Virginia.
In the event that an assembly appears to be a demonstration related to genuine grievances, those present shall be advised that orderly procedures for the hearing of college grievances are available and must be followed. College officials shall not negotiate with any organization under conditions of duress, i.e., unauthorized occupation of college property by such group.
