15.6 Responsibilities to the Community

(Amended 6/4/21)

Effective June 4, 2021, this policy has been revised. For individual changes, see the redlined version.

As a member of the community, the faculty member has the rights and obligations of any citizen. These include the right to organize and join political or other associations, convene and conduct public meetings and publicize his or her opinion on political and social issues. However, in exercising these rights, the faculty member must make it clear that he or she does not speak for the University, but simply as an individual. The faculty member does not use the classroom to solicit support for personal views and opinions.
