This morning, the small and sparsely occupied encampment at Rutgers-Newark was dismantled by the protestors shortly after they were informed by university officials that they needed to decamp, reflecting the university’s authority to regulate the time, place, and manner of protest on university property while preserving the First Amendment rights of the students, faculty, and staff to protest. Rutgers-Newark administrators, Rutgers University Police Department officers in their regular uniforms, and Facilities staff were on site to oversee the decampment, which was orderly and peaceful.
