CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE OR OTHER CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES
Civil Disobedience will usually take the form of an organized public demonstration of disapproval or disagreement with an idea or course of action. In many cases, campus protests such as marches, meetings, picketing and rallies will be peaceful and non-obstructive. A protest should not be disrupted unless one or more of the following conditions exists as a result of the demonstration:
- Disruption of the normal operations of the University.
- Obstructing access to offices, buildings, or other University facilities.
- Threat of physical harm to persons or damage to University facilities.
- Willful demonstrations within the interior of any University building or structure, except as specifically authorized and subject to reasonable conditions imposed to protect the rights and safety of other persons and to prevent damage to property.
Criminal Behavior is the breach of rules or laws, as established by Alcorn State University, the State of Mississippi, and Claiborne County, for which a conviction can be prescribed.
In the event of civil disobedience or criminal behavior, do not attempt to resolve the issue. Instead, contact Campus Police immediately at (601)877-3000.
