Bd. Min. 3-12-65; Amended 7-28-20.
- It is the intent and purpose of the Board of Curators to the full extent of its power to preserve the historic mission of search for truth, maintain the University of Missouri as a great and free University and to protect the interest of all citizens of Missouri in the University, its properties and its heritage.
- The University of Missouri should not and will not require that either faculty members or students give up any of their constitutional rights as citizens in order to remain associated with the University as employee or student.
- Just as all citizens on own responsibility may express views on any given subject, so may the faculty members, employees and students of the University of Missouri so long as such views or expressions do not constitute, advocate, encourage or condone violations of law.
