15.6 Responsibilities to the Community
Effective June 4, 2021, this policy has been revised. For individual changes, see the redlined version.
As members of the community, faculty members have 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 their opinion on political and social issues. However, in exercising these rights, faculty members must make it clear that they do not speak for the university, but simply as individuals. Faculty members do not use the classroom to solicit support for personal views and opinions.
