In light of campus demonstrations, a review of existing policies and procedures regarding the University's response to demonstrations and civil disobedience was conducted. The review focused on identifying best practices for the University's response to demonstrations and protest management. This resulted in the Robinson-Edley report, which proposed 49 recommendations. This report guides the UC system and campuses in how to respond to future protests effectively by addressing roles and responsibilities; policies; organization and structure; and training.
Free civil disclosure is critical to the University's mission, as is the health and safety of the community, and it is our goal to distinguish those practices that will enable lawful protest and demonstrations without endangering the wellness of students, faculty, staff, police, and the general public.
