Freedom in the Classroom

Freedom of discussion and expression of views must be encouraged and protected. It is the responsibility of the professor in the classroom and in conference to insure the realization, not only of the fact but the spirit, of free inquiry. In particular, students must be protected against prejudice or capricious academic evaluation. Information about student views, beliefs and political associations, acquired by College officials in the course of their work as instructors and advisors, is confidential and must not be disclosed to others.
