NOTICE OF CHANGE IN PROPOSED REGULATION AMENDMENT

Date: July 31, 2008

REGULATION TITLE: REGULATION NO.:
Disruptive Behavior 6C1-1.008

SUMMARY OF CHANGES: The University of Florida, in response to comments received
concerning the above regulation, has clarified paragraph (2) to read as follows:

(2) In accordance with First Amendment speech rights within a
designated public forum, when the University chooses to open its campus
for such an event that is open to the public for speech, disruption by an
attendee who is not staffing or acting on behalf of the University at the
event does not include the use of rude or offensive language alone, if it is
spoken at the designated time and place by a person whose turn it is to
speak under the event's protocol. Members of the University community
are encouraged to communicate effectively. This is often (but not always)
fostered by respectful conduct and speech. However, the language used
by the featured speaker or an attendee at such an open public event is a
personal choice, pursuant to First Amendment speech rights
within designated public fora. This provision does not protect speech that,
alone or in combination with any conduct, is obscene or constitutes or is
likely to provoke violence, an unsafe condition, an illegal action,
or conduct that violates another provision of the University's regulations.
