Relevant excerpt

It is the policy of the University to maintain and encourage full freedom, within the law, of
inquiry, teaching, and research. In the exercise of this freedom the faculty member may, without
limitation, discuss his/her own subject in the classroom; he/she may not however, claim as a
right the privilege of discussing in the classroom controversial matter which has no relation to
the subject. The principle of academic freedom shall be accompanied by a corresponding
principle of responsibility. In their roles as citizens, employees have the same freedoms as other
citizens. However, in their extramural utterances employees have an obligation to indicate that
they are not institutional spoke persons.
