A Conversation on Academic Freedom and Responsibility in a More Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Campus Community

4:00 PM to 5:30 PM


Join the National Center for Institutional Diversity for a conversation on academic freedom and responsibility in a more diverse, equitable and inclusive campus community.

Higher education institutions continue to grapple with the challenges and opportunities associated with exercising academic freedom and responsibility while seeking to become more diverse, equitable and inclusive campuses. This dynamic is particularly evident in the classroom. Faculty have the benefit of academic freedom that encourages a search for deeper knowledge and understanding, and the academic responsibility to ensure that complex content is presented through inclusive pedagogy that promotes positive learning environments.

This conversation with University of Michigan faculty and staff will further explore the principles and practices of academic responsibility and academic freedom, and how these are effectively exercised in a  diverse, inclusive and equitable campus community.
