Report Finds Violations of Academic Freedom

A new AAUP report, which appears in the 2011 Bulletin of the AAUP that accompanies this issue of Academe, finds violations of academic freedom in two cases at Louisiana’s flagship public institution, Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. The cases were investigated and the report written by a committee of AAUP members with no previous involvement with the individuals in question. The first case, affecting a nontenured associate professor of engineering, involves freedom in pursuing research, publication, and extramural speech in a politically charged atmosphere.
