Committee on Academic Freedom

Charge

Monitor, examine and report annually to the Senate on the status of academic freedom at the college. Make appropriate recommendations regarding academic freedom policies and practices to the college’s governance bodies and, as appropriate, through those bodies to the University Faculty Senate. Investigate possible violations of academic freedom. In order to ensure a secure and protected environment for individuals who wish to bring cases of abridgement of academic freedom before the committee, such charges will be examined by a sub-committee of two members chosen by the complainant or, if requested, by the committee chair.
