The article focuses on the principles of academic freedom and the application of those principles in the context of faculty speech. Topics include the origins and endorsement of the 1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure, the distinction between speech as a citizen and disciplinary speech, and a proposal for revising academic freedom policies and establishing a faculty committee for adjudication.
