On Jan. 25, 2018, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents approved policy 6.4.10 Commitment to Free Expression; Guide for Facilities Use; and Education. This Board policy does the following:
Reinforces the commitment of the Board of Regents and University of Nebraska to the tenants of free expression.
Directs each campus to implement and communicate facilities use plans that – consistent with the law, university policy and each campus’ unique mission – designate which facilities, properties and other resources are “designated public forums” (such as a sidewalk), which are “limited public forums” (such as a concert hall), and which are “non-public forums” (such as a classroom).
Mandates that the university provide regular opportunities for education about the First Amendment and relevant policies.
In response to this policy, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) has developed a draft campus policy titled “Regulations on the Use of University Facilities and Grounds.”
Our Campus. Otherwise Known as Omaha.
