The Office of Student Activities encourages and supports student activism by guiding students through the development of programs and events.

If you would like to host a protest or demonstration, we ask that you meet with our staff to inform us of your plans. This will allow us to help you to secure an approved, safe space on campus to host your protest or demonstration, as well as, to notify the necessary campus partners who may also assist with your program details and logistics.

Vigils, memorials, or campus-wide meetings such as a rally or walk also require notification of the Student Activities staff, again to ensure students are provided with appropriate space on campus to meet your program goals.

We also encourage students to invite or update our Campus Chaplain and the Counseling Center staff about programs to ensure support is provided for students in need.
