Public Use of Scottsdale Community College

Expressive Activity (aka Petition Signatures, Voter Registration and Public Speech/Expression)

MCCCD has a long history of supporting expressive activities that are conducted on campuses. For the purposes of avoiding disruption or interference with its educational activities, while protecting the rights of the members of the campus community and their invited guests to express themselves and access information, this administrative regulation governs the Use of College Grounds by Affiliated Users for Expressive Activity in MCCCD Policy 2.4.14.

Requests to Attend Class to Register Students to Vote

Faculty may decide who is an appropriate guest to invite into their classrooms, weighing whether the request fits within the parameters of their course and does not create a disruptive influence on the educational environment.

Voter Registration Outside the Classroom

Registering voters is a protected expressive activity and should be allowed without further need to process or manage the activity unless the person or entity is requesting reserved space or equipment (such as a table) or is actually presenting a substantial disruption.

Petitions/Signature Gathering

Gathering signatures is a protected expressive activity and should be allowed without further need to process or manage the activity unless the person or entity is requesting reserved space or equipment (such as a table) or is actually presenting a substantial disruption.
