Academic Freedom, Academic Responsibility, Academic Due Process in Institutions of Higher Learning. Revised Edition.
American Civil Liberties Union, New York, NY.
This pamphlet presents a statement of principles by the American Civil Liberties Union concerning the civil liberties and obligations of teachers and desirable procedures involving academic freedom in public and private colleges and universities. Academic freedom and responsibility of teachers embraces two distinct areas: (1) the conduct of a teacher apart from specifically professional responsibilities and (2) his conduct in teaching and other activities directly related to professional responsibilities. Included in the pamphlet are the procedures to be taken with the Civil Liberties Union when a professor feels that his academic freedom in either one of these areas has been infringed upon. (HS)
