Delivery of Education

University Faculty

Faculty are expected to assume a responsibility to pursue teaching and scholarly activities which necessitate free inquiry, intellectual honesty, free expression, respect for the dignity and rights of others, and openness to change. Faculty rights and responsibilities practiced within the University must be compatible with these characteristics. These are also extended to its teaching, research, and community service and involve both the faculty and students. University Faculty are expected to provide students with same principles that they claim for themselves, namely, the freedom to consider conflicting views and to make their own evaluations of data, evidence, and doctrines. Moreover, University Faculty has a responsibility to maintain an atmosphere conducive to intellectual inquiry and rationale.
