CUNY Interim Chancellor for Student Affairs Chris RosaStatement on the Freedom of Student Expression

At The City University of New York, we cherish the freedom of students to express their views, consistent with the protections provided by the First Amendment. Student freedom in this regard is an essential attribute of a great University where the independent search for truth is held in the highest esteem. With such freedom, however, comes an abiding responsibility. This responsibility includes respect for the rights of other‎s inside and out of CUNY and for the University’s obligation to maintain a safe environment for all members of its community.

Students should also be cognizant of the efforts of a few to distract attention from important issues in higher education like learning, access and quality by invoking discriminatory language reeking of thinly veiled bigotry, prejudice, anti-semitism or other behavior inconsistent with our educational mission.

We can help assure such recognition by the high premium we place on dialogue and discussion at CUNY and by the expression of our own views while respecting the rights of those we may disagree with. At the end of the day, CUNY will retain its status as a great institution of higher education where valuable knowledge is both transmitted and created and our sense of community is affirmed and strengthened.

— Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
