A2000.05 Academic Freedom

The Board and the Association recognize the value of protecting and encouraging the search for knowledge and its dissemination. Faculty members have both the right and obligation to investigate and to present to their students, based upon their professional judgment, available information related to the subject being taught. The course content must be consistent with objectives of the course as adopted by the Board. Faculty members shall seek to be accurate, show respect for the opinion of others, present all facets of controversial issues in an unbiased manner, identify their own personal persuasion on controversial issues where necessary to present an unbiased presentation on such issues, and indicate, where appropriate, that their views are not necessarily the views of the College.
