Expectations for Free Speech Activities

Modesto Junior College shall identify appropriate locations on campus to be used as limited public forums as prescribed by YCCD Board Policy.

Limited public forums on Modesto Junior College's campus are "areas generally available to students and the community," defined as grassy areas, walkways, or other similar common areas. This definition governs the phrase "areas generally available to students and the community" as it is used throughout this guideline.

The following types of expression, as defined by law, are considered unprotected speech, and will not be tolerated: threats, incitement of imminent lawless action, racial and sexual harassment, fighting words, obscenity and defamation.

  3. Cooperation with Modesto Junior College staff is expected when visiting the campus and/or using campus tables, equipment and facilities.
