University Policies
& Guidelines

- Freedom of Expression

This policy articulates AUP’s guiding principle as an educational institution of defending free speech and condemning hate speech. As a private American institution located in France, AUP encourages, protects, and sustains the freedom of expression, offering the broadest possible latitude to both internal and external speakers within the limits of French and European law. Hate speech is antithetical to AUP’s core values and its prohibition extends to every corner of AUP’s campus, including online speech.
