Freedom of Speech and Expression 

Free speech is welcomed and encouraged at all College campuses and locations. Students are welcome to assemble and/or exercise free speech that does not disrupt learning, enter areas that contain confidential records, or disrupt college operations.

Students have rights under the United States Constitution which may be exercised in the College as in other public institutions. The law recognizes that these rights are subject to restraints that may be imposed because of the College’s role and function. It is the policy of the NWTC Board of Trustees to respect the properly exercised rights of students.
