Academic Freedom

Northern Marianas College both believes and has a policy that states that academic freedom and academic responsibility are inseparable. Academic freedom is the right of members of the academic community to conduct research, to teach and to communicate knowledge in their fields of expertise, openly and without influence by individuals with a particular bias. Members of the academic community are entitled to full freedom in research and in the publication of the results, subject to the satisfactory performance of their other academic and/or administrative duties.

Instructors at the College are entitled to freedom in the classroom in discussing their subject. However, they should strive to be sensitive to the prevailing thought and feeling of the community when introducing subjects that may be controversial. Faculty should also take care to distinguish between personal conviction and proven conclusions and to present relevant data fairly and objectively.
