Reclaiming Your Freedom to Live Your Beliefs on Campus


Academic Freedom

Academic freedom is the ability to learn and teach without restraint, even when doing so is unpopular. Whether you’re a professor or a student on a university campus, you have the constitutional right to express your faith in academia. 

Professors can research and publish freely

There’s nothing wrong with publishing unpopular ideas, even when they include your faith.

Students can refuse to advocate publicly

Professors can ask you to advocate a variety of ideas in class but not to the public
