For a Lecture Series About the Freedom of Expression…

Seriously, guys? What the fuck?

…there’s certainly a lot of repressive administrative posturing going around.

Dean of Students Rick Culliton recently sent the following email to the authors of the Wespeaks denouncing Scalia’s visit, promising possible judicial action against any who plan to protest tomorrow.

I wanted to follow up with you after reading your Wespeaks in yesterday’s Argus and prior to Justice Scalia’s visit to campus. I realize that as a collective you are opposed to his visit and may be planning to participate in some forms of protest. As you are likely aware, Wesleyan has a Disruption Policy http://bit.ly/wDrxdf [link shortened for aesthetic purposes by Wesleying] which outlines what is expected by the University. As a university, we have an expectation that people will not be obstructed from moving freely about campus, that the curricular, co-curricular and administrative activities of the university will not be disrupted and that others will not be deprived of their right to be heard. I would be happy to speak with any of you prior to tomorrow’s visit if you have any questions about what is permissible under University policy.

Best,

Dean Rick

It’s gonna be a fun time.
