New York Tech Vancouver Policies

Academic Freedom Vancouver

All faculty at NYIT work within the context of the institution's commitment to the principles of academic freedom. Instructors are entitled to freedom in the classroom in discussing their subject, but should be careful not to introduce into the teaching controversial matters that have no relation to the subject being taught.

NYIT instructors are citizens, members of a learned profession, and officers of an educational institution. When they speak or write as citizens, they should be free from institutional censorship or discipline, but their special position in the community imposes special obligations. As persons of learning and educational officers, they should be mindful that the public may judge the profession and the institution by these utterances. Hence, they should at all times be accurate, exercise appropriate restraint, show respect for the opinions of others, and make every effort to indicate that they are not institutional spokespersons.

The instructor is entitled to full freedom in research and in the publication of results; however, research for pecuniary return must be approved annually by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
