Skip to 0 minutes and 11 seconds If you had a question or concern about academic freedom on your campus, would you know who to talk to? What would happen if you raised it? This week, we’ll talk about tools that you can use to build dialogue on your campus about academic freedom and how to respond to incidents. What is important here, is to be proactive. If we start to talk about academic freedom before an issue has arisen, then it will help us to build a better vocabulary and better tools to establish trust. Because that takes time, we’ll also give you tools for assessing incidents when they arise, hopefully, giving you the power to get to better responses.
