Practicing Academic Freedom

At Collin College, our Board policies, consistent with the constitutional freedoms guaranteed to all citizens, promote the free expression of ideas of all individuals, including the academic freedom of faculty, which contribute to creativity, learning, and greater understanding. In exercising these freedoms, our employees should recognize, as indicated in Board Policy DGC(LOCAL), that “their actions will inevitably be judged by the public and reflect upon their profession and institution. Therefore, [employees] will strive for accuracy, exercise appropriate restraint, exhibit tolerance for differing opinions, and indicate clearly that they are not official spokespeople for the College...".

At Collin College, we have made a strong commitment to uphold our Core Values, and particularly the value of treating all with dignity and respect. We encourage our students, faculty, and staff to exhibit and practice those Core Values as an example to one another and to our community. By doing so, we will achieve the college’s vision of delivering a brighter future for our students and communities.
