What is Expressive Activity?

Expressive activity means any speech or expressive conduct protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution or by Section 8, Article I, Texas Constitution, and includes assemblies, protests, speeches, the distribution of written material, the carrying of signs, and the circulation of petitions. The term does not include commercial Speech. 

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi recognizes the constitutional rights and privileges of freedom of speech in expressive activities by individuals and groups on campus. 

Freedom of speech and assembly is central to the mission of institutions of higher education and persons should be permitted to assemble peaceably on the campuses of institutions of higher education for expressive activities, including to listen to or observe the expressive activities of others. 

The university will ensure the continuing openness and effectiveness of channels of communication among the TAMU-CC community on questions of common interest. To further this purpose, the Expressive Activities Committee has been established as a standing university committee.
