When and where did the university make this statement?

You made the following post yesterday:

While you're sipping your sarsaparilla, read this from the website of Ferris State University.

Although Ferris State University values a tolerant and civil campus environment, we cannot limit speech to only the inoffensive and comfortable. Sometimes we will need to agree to disagree, even when other's opinions anger, sadden, frustrate, hurt, or offend us. As stated in San Francisco State University v. Reed, 523 F. Supp. 2d 1005 (2007), "Controversial the First Amendment's highest duty to protect. By political definition, popular views need no protection. It is the unpopular notions that are in the greatest peril - and it was primarily to protect their expression that the First Amendment was adopted." Sharing, arguing and dissecting varying opinions and ideas help people learn from one another and aid in the formulation and solidification of our own views.

Professor Mehler was given the "No Choice" choice by college administrators that he would be required to teach in person students not vaccinated, in accordance with the discretionary decision of the college administrators, or being terminated permanently for refusing to do so at 74 years of age and possibly in poor health.

If Professor Mehler makes the wrong "No Choice" choice and contracts covid-19 one month later, could not the college argue in court that Professor Mehler surrendered all of his legal rights for damages in a federal civil rights lawsuit against the college by his voluntary acceptance to teach classes in the manner mandated by the college administrators?
