Different responses to campus protests have been seen nationwide. Private institutions have used police force, while public universities like UCLA have tolerated peaceful protests. UC system has a lighter approach due to 1st Amendment requirements. Decades of protests have shaped UC’s response. Encampments and demonstrations are happening at other universities. Some criticized UC’s response to protests, others praised it. The report supports peaceful protests but calls for balance between free speech and safety.
