Freedom of expression and academic freedom are recognised as fundamental to the effective functioning of Universities in the fulfilment of their missions to advance learning, teaching and research. However, such freedoms are not absolute and are subject to legally and contractually imposed limits to protect the rights and freedoms of others.
This information note has been produced to assist University managers responsible for implementing University policies and procedures where freedom of expression or academic freedom may have a bearing.
The note also outlines how further guidance may be sought on such matters where appropriate.
