Per Arizona Revised Statutes §15-1866, the board requires the college to adopt and implement the following language regarding free expression:
- The primary function of an institution of higher education is the discovery, improvement, transmission and dissemination of knowledge by means of research, teaching, discussion and debate. This statement shall provide that, to fulfill this function, the university or community college must strive to ensure the fullest degree of intellectual freedom and free expression.
- It is not the proper role of an institution of higher education to shield individuals from speech protected by the first amendment, including, without limitation, ideas and opinions that may be unwelcome, disagreeable or deeply offensive.
- Students and faculty members have the freedom to discuss any problem that presents itself, as the first amendment allows and within the limits of reasonable viewpoint and content-neutral restrictions on time, place and manner of expression that are consistent with this article and that are necessary to achieve a compelling institutional interest if these restrictions are clear, are published and provide ample alternative means of expression. This statement shall specify that students and faculty members may assemble and engage in spontaneous expressive activities if those activities are not unlawful and do not materially and substantially disrupt the functioning of the university or community college.
- There is a range of disciplinary actions for a student who is subject to the jurisdiction of a university or community college and who engages in individual conduct that materially and substantially infringes on the rights of other persons to engage in or listen to expressive activity.
- In all disciplinary proceedings involving students, including proceedings involving expressive conduct, a student is entitled to a disciplinary hearing under published procedures that include, at a minimum, all of the following:
- The right to receive advanced written notice of the allegations.
- The right to review the evidence in support of the allegations.
- The right to confront witnesses who testify against that student.
- The right to present a defense.
