Whereas academic freedom has been, and continues to be, a cornerstone in all aspects of higher education, and
Whereas there is no recent, uniform documentation or definitions about what academic freedom comprises, and
Whereas individual instructors and individual community colleges may not have clear understandings of academic freedom,
Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to develop a position paper on academic freedom, its scope and implementation.
The position paper was adopted Spring1998 and published for distribution.
