University of Hawaii (Hilo): Our students are easily intimidated, need to be protected from people handing out literature

From the University of Hawaii (Hilo) Registered Independent Student Organization Handbook:

When using a public venue, RISOs may not approach people to solicit them. Although we support a diverse intellectual and social atmosphere on campus, we also believe that each person should be able to freely choose whether to listen to your solicitation or not.

And the university seems to be enforcing this, apparently ordering students to stop distributing copies of the Constitution. (“Solicit” here thus doesn’t mean just solicitation of funds, but also covers offering literature)…
