Free Speech

Southwest Virginia Community College is committed to supporting the exercise of constitutionally protected expression in college-controlled facilities and property while maintaining a safe atmosphere free from disruption. Please see the SWCC-Annual-Expressive-Activity-Report-for-2022

The use of college facilities and property must

  • be safe for participants and not generate security issues
  • preserve the integrity and aesthetics of the college’s property.
