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...".
