Academic freedom and freedom of expression include but are not limited to the expression of ideas,
however, controversial, in the classroom setting, academic environment, University-recognized activities, or on the campus.
Nothing contained in this policy shall be construed to limit the legitimate exercise of free speech, including but not limited
to written, graphic or verbal expression that can reasonably be demonstrated to serve legitimate educational or artistic
purposes, nor shall this policy be construed to infringe upon the academic or artistic freedom of any member of the
University. Artistic expression in the classroom, studio, gallery and theater merits the same protection of academic freedom
that is accorded to other scholarly and teaching activities.
