ACADEMIC FREEDOM

In institution of higher education, like Remnant University, the principle of Academic Freedom is essential (distinctive) to the search for truth and its exposition. Freedom in research is fundamental to the advancement of knowledge and the right to Academic Freedom in its teaching aspect is fundamental for the protection of the rights of the faculty and of the students in the educational process.

These concepts of Academic Freedom are promoted at Remnant University and they are elaborated as follows:
The faculty, staff and of the students of Remnant University is entitled to full freedom in research and in publication of the results, subject to the adequate performance of Faculty's other academic duties. The faculty member may take on additional employment, including research for pecuniary return, without the approval of the University's officer or President of the University, provided it does not interfere with his/her duties at the University. The faculty and of the students of Remnant University are entitled to freedom in the classroom to discuss their subject, but should exercise this freedom in a responsible manner.

The faculty, staff and the students of Remnant University may exercise their rights as citizens when speaking or writing as citizens and should be free from institutional censorship or discipline, but the faculty member’s special position in the community imposes special obligations. As a member of the teaching profession, and as a representative of an educational institution, the faculty member should remember that the public may judge his/her profession and his/her institution by his/her utterances.

Hence, the faculty member, staff and students should at all times be accurate; should exercise appropriate restraint; should show respect for the opinion of others; and should make every effort to indicate that (s)he is not speaking for Remnant University. Any faculty member and students who believes that his/her rights have been abridged or ignored by an administrative officer or employees of Remnant University and who is unable to obtain redress which is satisfactory to the faculty member within his/her own department, shall have the right to appeal to the President of the University.
