Academic Freedom and Educational Responsibility (pdf copy).
AAC&U's board of directors issued this statement to help faculty address recent debates on bias and intellectual diversity in the classroom. The statement argues that debates about the personal political views of faculty members distract attention from the far more urgent challenge of providing a quality education that prepares all college students to succeed and make a difference in today's complex world. It discusses the need to teach students to make informed judgments in the face of conflicting views and reaffirms the importance of protecting the academic freedom of faculty members to make judgments about curricula.
