Speakers Policy

Public Notice

When to give public notice:

  • If there would likely be extensive public notice or controversy associated with the presence of any speaker on campus, prior notice should be given to the head of the University Marketing and Communications, in the case of likely inquiries from external constituencies of the University or media; and to the Director of Campus Safety Services, in the case of possible protest or disruption. Except for unusual circumstances, the notice should be at least one week before the meeting or event is to occur.

Guest Speakers

Guest speaker statement:

  • The presence of a guest speaker on the campus of Santa Clara University does not necessarily imply approval or endorsement by the University of the views expressed by the guest speaker, or by anyone else present at the event.
