Free Speech at Cal State Fullerton

One way Cal State Fullerton demonstrates its commitment to these ideals is by providing space and conditions that encourage the free exchange of thoughts and ideas from multiple perspectives. We value and respect the rich diversity of our campus and community as well as the expression of different points of view.

Although these discussions may make some feel uncomfortable or angry, free speech has never been more important. Enshrined in the First Amendment of our nation’s Constitution, this right is integral to democracy and to increasing our understanding of one another. For other inquiries and resources:
