“Texas A&M University supports the principle of freedom of expression for both instructors and students. The
university respects the rights of instructors to teach and students to learn. Maintenance of these rights requires
classroom conditions that do not impede their exercise. Classroom behavior that seriously interferes with either (1)
the instructor’s ability to conduct the class or (2) the ability of other students to profit from the instructional progr am
will not be tolerated. An individual engaging in disruptive classroom behavior may be subject to disciplinary action.
When a student’s behavior in a class is so seriously disruptive as to compel immediate action, the instructor has the
authority to remove a student from the class on an interim basis, pending an informal hearing on the behavior.” For
