Free Expression Disruption Notice Protocol

Before the Event Begins: As an administrator responsible for this event, I remind you that Yale is committed to protecting free expression and peaceful dissent.  Interfering with a speaker’s ability to speak and the audience’s ability to hear and see is not consistent with the university’s free expression policy.

After Any Disruption: As I have already informed you, preventing others from hearing or seeing the speaker is not permitted. I am informing you that you are in violation of the university’s free expression policy, and any disruption must stop immediately. I will give you one more warning momentarily.  If the disruption does not stop, you will be subject to possible disciplinary sanctions, citation, and summons.

Final Warning: I will now call upon university administrators and security personnel to assist in allowing this event to proceed without further disruption.
