We have designated specific areas on campus for free assembly for the conduct of political activity and other exercises of free speech.
In addition to the public areas (under the jurisdiction of the City of San Rafael), the following area on campus shall be deemed a free assembly area for the conduct of political activity and other exercises of free speech by third parties: the open grass area between Acacia Avenue, Guzman Hall, Angelico Hall (excepting an area used for entering/exiting the event) and Ralph Minor Hall (referred to as “Guzman Lawn”).
Such use must be on a noninterference basis with the conduct of classes or other normal activities of the University. Determinations of what constitutes interference shall be made by the University President or designee in the best interests of the University.
Assemblies and public addresses must be conducted so that campus pedestrians and automobile traffic are unimpeded and members of the University Community not participating in the event may proceed with their normal activities.
In order to ensure compliance with the City of San Rafael’s Events Management Plan for Dominican University of California, any outdoor assemblies and public addresses, including those on the Guzman Lawn, must be conducted without sound amplification equipment.
Please note that University officials reserve the right immediately to terminate any use of University facilities if, in the judgment of those officials, continuation of such use will result in:
- Danger to participants or others;
- Unlawful conduct by participants or others; or
- Substantial interference with, disruption or disturbance of the University’s educational mission, operations, business or function.
Conducting events in accordance with our Events Management Plan helps to ensure that the University can continue to offer these educational events for our campus and the community.
