New interim policy at UH Hilo

By 67AM KPUA News

The University of Hawai`i at Hilo has announced it is implementing an interim policy on speech and assembly as it explores permanent changes to existing policy.

The policy review follows the recent filing of a federal lawsuit by two students against the University and four individuals alleging various claims, relating mostly to First Amendment issues.

The interim policy will permit student speech, assembly and distribution of non-commercial literature in all open areas on campus provided the activity does not impede passersby, interfere with or disrupt the educational process of other scheduled activities.

Since the filing of the lawsuit, the university and the students, through their respective attorneys, have engaged in productive discussions to resolve the lawsuit, including exploring possible permanent changes to university policy and practices regarding speech and assembly on campus.

The university hopes to resolve the lawsuit with the students.
