Freedom of Expression at Ohio State

The Ohio State University is committed to supporting First Amendment rights on campus in upholding the institution’s academic motto, which is Education for Citizenship. Since the university’s founding, its land-grant mission has been to create a pathway to accessible education and a place for the exchange of ideas.  

Ohio State supports the rights of its students, faculty, staff, volunteers, visitors, community partners and program participants to exercise their freedom of speech and expression under the law. Resources are available for students, faculty and staff in support of exercising freedom of speech and expression.
