The Council of the University requires all members of the academic staff, employees and students of the University to tolerate and protect the expression of opinions within the law, whether or not those opinions are repugnant to them.
Accordingly, and as required by law, the Council has approved and adopted this Code which is binding on all members of the Academic staff and of the Council and on all employees and students of the University. For students it has the force of regulations for conduct.
Any alleged breach of this Code will be subject of disciplinary proceedings as provided for under the Charter, Ordinances and Regulations of the University and where appropriate under contracts of employment.
If you are intending to organise a meeting, the nature of which is such that the maintenance of freedom of speech or of related good order cannot reasonably be assumed and the External Speaker Policy does not apply, you are required to inform the University Secretary before any arrangements are made.
