Academic freedom

  • Mary E. Hunt


Academic freedom is a time-honored dimension of life in the academy. It typically refers to the respect accorded to each one for her/his work and to the expectation that one can articulate possibly unpopular ideas and beliefs in the classroom. What is not always clear is what it means, how far it goes, to whom and how it applies. In fact, the irony is that many of the people who most need tenure for the protection of their rights often do not get it.
