Academic Freedom: Successfully Navigate Contemporary Challenges So You Can Preserve the Principles of Higher Education - March 23, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1067 Academic.Freedom.3.23.17
Is academic freedom essential or expendable? Institutions face many pressures for intellectual conformity. Students may object to a grant the university receives from an ideologically-driven foundation. Trustees may take issue with a professor’s provocative tweet. An invitation to a controversial speaker may inspire a state legislature to slash funds or federal immigration authorities to deny a visa.
Institutions clumsy in handling such issues may forfeit their membership in the “marketplace of ideas.” American higher education must continue to aspire to diversity of opinion, perhaps more than ever before.
Join us for this interactive webinar with nationally-recognized expert Ann Franke on March 23, 2017 and in just 90 minutes, you’ll increase your capacity to proceed strategically amid noisy assertions of competing rights. You’ll be able to navigate the contemporary challenges of academic freedom, identify your allies so you have support during disputes, and preserve and protect the intellectual principles of academia.
