Freedom of expression

Durham University is committed to freedom of expression within the law and to the safety of staff, students and visitors to the University.

Our Policy Statement and our Code of Practice on Freedom of Expression set out clear expectations and processes for activities affiliated to, funded by or branded as Durham University.

The University works with student leaders to ensure all activities meet the expectations of our Policy Statement and Code of Practice.
