Abstract

This paper is intended to provide a foundation for further discussion and debate at the plenary panel on “Civility and Academic Freedom” at the National Center’s annual conference on April 20, 2015. The discussion, below, sets forth a structure for evaluating university policies seeking promote “civility” in faculty and student discourse. In particular, this paper evaluates the asserted justifications for civility-related policies and their implications for academic freedom. The paper provides, as well, a list of AAUP materials useful for considering the academic freedom implications of civility-related policies in universities.
