Academic Freedom Statement
It is fundamental to the health of an academic institution and ultimately to the health of a society at large that individual persons and groups of persons exercise their responsibility and freedom to search for the truth and to speak the truth as it is discovered. In a collegial community, the corporate person of the University and the persons of the faculty, staff, administration, and the student body bear mutual responsibility to exercise professional competence and to extend to one another the trust and respect which foster an environment for the exercise of academic freedom.
Specific information regarding student academic freedoms, code of student conduct, student judicial system, policy on harassment and discrimination, and student grievance procedures is contained in the Student Handbook available from the Campus Life Division. See the section on Student Rights, Freedoms, and Responsibilities.
