San Diego State University deeply values and supports free speech and freedom of expression, which are fundamental rights and core to our nation’s democracy. Our campus is committed to its academic mission and public mandate to serve as a place where individuals from diverse perspectives can freely express and explore ideas, concepts and opinions.
SDSU also values and respects the rich diversity of our campus community, and the university is committed to providing both the space and the conditions that encourage open and free exchange. Doing so means that we may, at times, experience ideas that may be unwelcoming or difficult. Through open conversation and the sharing of ideas, we believe we can become a more informed and understanding people.
