Academic Freedom and Student Records


Middle Georgia State University faculty members are entitled to full academic freedom as set forth by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) in the 1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure with 1970 Interpretive Comments as modified in 1989 and 1990

In their interactions with students in the classroom and in other instructional venues, faculty members are expected to maintain at all times the highest standards of academic professionalism and are not to use their courses for purposes of political or ideological indoctrination. Faculty members are also to make every effort to assure unimpeded intellectual diversity in their classes, and they should avoid the appearance that students who disagree with their views on matters of opinion will in any way be penalized or put at a disadvantage.
