1. Pacific Lutheran University endorses the principle that by definition it is a place of free inquiry. In accordance with this principle, any recognized university organization shall be allowed to invite any person of its choosing. Effort should be made to inform the academic and larger community that such sponsorship of a guest speaker does not necessarily imply approval of the views expressed or endorsement of them by either the sponsoring group or the university.
  2. Routine scheduling procedures required by the university must be followed before completing arrangements for any speaker. Availability of suitable space for the event which does not conflict with the university’s regularly scheduled program will be the only factor considered in approving a proposed meeting, but it shall be required that the audience be given an opportunity to question speakers at the conclusion of their presentations. This latter requirement may be waived only by the director of the University Center or by appeal to the president. Either of these persons may also require:
    1. The appointment of an approved moderator for the event with authority to close the meeting if, in their judgment, it becomes disorderly or disruptive.
    2. The restriction of the audience to members of the campus community or to members of a specific organization only.
