News and Announcements

VCU officials, including VCU Police, are aware of the communications. Any reprehensible and offensive comments that are intended to demean or despise specific individuals or groups are inconsistent with VCU values. It also is important as a public university to uphold ethical and legal obligations. The First Amendment prohibits prior restraints on speech and taking adverse action against individuals based on the viewpoint of the speech. Most verbal statements and social media are protected speech, no matter how appalling or insensitive they are to others. We trust that our students grasp the need to balance between First Amendment protected speech, and the need for educators and students alike to counter offensive or distasteful speech with words that inspire and encourage.
