DePaul University’s long held commitment to speech and expression is outlined in The Guiding Principles for Speech and Expression at DePaul University.

Reviewed and revised in 2017, the principles ‘. . . affirm a presumption in favor of permitting speech and expression as essential to the pursuit of knowledge in the University setting . . .’

We are reviewing the federal administration’s ‘free inquiry’ executive order issued this week. We cannot know the full effect of the order before it is implemented. However, at this point, we do not anticipate any changes to DePaul’s current policy and practice.​
