Provost's Updates

Controversial group visiting campus

As an academic community, the University of Oregon strongly values free speech and academic freedom. Even content that may be offensive to many people is protected under the First Amendment and UO free-expression policies.

This value may be tested this week when a controversial group visits the university. They bring movable visual displays to campuses nationwide that contain graphic images associated with an antiabortion viewpoint. The images may be shocking to some. Due to the graphic nature of the display, the university is providing advance notice to campus so those who don’t want to see the images can avoid the EMU Green this Wednesday and Thursday.
