8150 Campus Dissent/Disruption

Policy Type: 

Henry Ford College supports the concept of dissent as an essential aspect of the development of critical thinking.

Dissent, as defined herein, is an individual or organized activity which expresses grievances held against, or changes, desired in society at large, or on a campus, or both.

Dissent on the campus will be protected as a constitutional right and a major means of renewal of a democratic society.

Disruption, however, when it interferes with the rights of students, faculty, administration, and guests of the College is not protected by the Constitution of the United States. Any such disruptions that impede the free movement of persons to and from College property and buildings; and obstruct or disrupt the normal functioning and related operations and activities of the College community will not be accepted.
