Freedom of Expression 

In accordance with its Mission, members of the Dunwoody community are expected to develop into leaders and entrepreneurs. This goal is often accomplished through normal activities of Dunwoody students, staff, faculty and administration while learning and working in an environment of Inclusion, Innovation, Integrity, Excellence and Tradition.

Dunwoody strives to create an environment in which diverse opinions can be expressed and heard. Members of the Dunwoody community have the right to peacefully express their views and opinions, regardless of whether others may disagree, but not in such a way as to prevent the speaker’s freedom of expression or interfere with the college operation. Views expressed should not violate any of Dunwoody’s policies or values.
