Speakers and Entertainers


The University is a forum for ideas and their exchange. Such exchange can only occur on a scholarly plane if order is maintained and standards of decorum and good behavior are recognized by all. The University recognizes that some speakers or entertainers will have audiences of a single class or seminar, and that other speakers or entertainers will be addressing themselves to a wider spectrum of the University community. It is the responsibility of the University to provide the climate and conditions for teaching, research, extension, and other services and the following policies are designed to serve these objectives:

  1. The arrangements for a speaker or entertainer, the conduct of the speaker or entertainer on campus, and the good order of the meeting are the concern of both the inviting group and the University. The privilege to invite speakers or entertainers carries with it important responsibilities to insure that the proper objectives of the University are not compromised. Only those student organizations recognized by the University may invite and sponsor speakers or entertainers.
  2. The University reserves the right to cancel any speaking or entertainment event it deems likely to cause an interruption in the University’s orderly activities.
  3. The President or his duly authorized representative may order a speaking or entertainment event to be terminated on grounds that it constitutes a disruptive activity. Any member of the faculty or staff or any student who resists such an order shall be subject to disciplinary action.
  4. The person or organization inviting a speaker or entertainer to the campus will be pecuniary responsible for any and all damages caused by acts of malfeasance or malfeasance on the part of the speaker or entertainer, or those acting in concert with him. The person or organization inviting a speaker or entertainer to the campus shall hold the University harmless from any and all losses and damages caused by acts of malfeasance on the part of the speaker or entertainer, or those acting in concert with him.
