Faculty Rights and Responsibilities
- Academic Freedom: The teacher is entitled to full freedom in the classroom in discussing his/her subject, but he/she should not introduce topics unrelated to his/her subject or related fields. He/she is also entitled to full freedom in research and in publication of the results of that research.
- Public Responsibilities: The Limestone University teacher is a member of the community at large, a member of a learned profession, and a representative of an educational institution.
