Expressive Activities

Expressive Activities

San Jacinto College is committed to fostering a learning environment where free inquiry and expression are encouraged. The College recognizes the right to assemble, speak, carry signs, and distribute literature and petitions.  


In accordance with the rules specified in Policy VII.7003.A and Procedure VII.7003.A.a, Expressive Activities, students, employees, and members of the general public, individually or in organized groups, may engage in expressive activities in the College’s outdoor common areas, subject to reasonable restrictions of time, place, and manner. 

The College will not discriminate on the basis of a political, religious, philosophical, ideological, or academic viewpoint expressed by any person, either in the enforcement or administration of these rules.

Expressive Activities space

Eligible individuals or groups may request the use of indoor space by completing an Expressive Activities Form. The requesting group or individual must submit a completed Expressive Activities Form to reserve Indoor Space for Organized Expressive Activity.

Reservations must be made at least five business days in advance of the planned event but no more than sixty days in advance of the planned event. Reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

An application is “received” for purpose of this section if it is actually received between the hours of 8:30 AM. and 4:00 PM Monday-Friday. Registered student organizations and/or College employees are given priority over off-campus organizations and members of the public if a campus receives two or more forms on the same day seeking to reserve the same location at the same or conflicting times.

In the event of conflicting forms between multiple registered student organizations and/or College employees will be selected using a neutral, random method. In the event of conflicting forms between organizations not affiliated with the College, Forms will be selected using a neutral, random method.   

While no approval or reservation is required to engage in expressive activity in an outdoor common area, individuals have the ability to reserve an outdoor space on campus in order to guarantee their desired space of expression is kept available to them during the specific date/time of their planned activity.
