Academic Freedom

The Triton College Board of Trustees supports the concept of academic freedom for the full- and part-time teachers of the college.

Faculty members shall be free to present instructional materials which are pertinent to the subject and level taught and shall be expected to present all facets of controversial issues in an unbiased manner.

As an individual of learning and a representative of the college, he or she shall remember that the public may judge the teaching profession and the college by his or her utterances. Hence, he or she shall exercise appropriate restraint, show respect for the opinion of others, and make every effort to indicate that he or she is not an institutional spokesperson.
