网赌软件排行榜 Joint Faculty Senate - Administration Resolution
而, 网赌软件排行榜 firmly supports academic freedom and free speech on campus; and
而, 大学校园里有很多活动, 特别是, political speakers and demonstrators who have made visits to such campuses over the past several years, have raised questions about status of free speech on American university campuses; and
而, the free speech policy statement produced by the Committee for Freedom of Expression at the University of Chicago has become a model for many universities’ affirmations of free speech and academic freedom across the country since its publication in 2015; and
而, the Chicago Statement has been adopted or endorsed by a growing number of faculty bodies and institutions across the United States; therefore
Be it Resolved that the 网赌软件排行榜 Faculty Senate and administration together endorse the following statement on freedom of expression, 摘自芝加哥大学的声明:
Because 网赌软件排行榜 is committed to free and open inquiry in all matters, it guarantees all members of the University community the broadest possible latitude to speak, 写, 听, 挑战, 和学习. Except insofar as limitations on that freedom are necessary to the functioning of the University, 网赌软件排行榜 fully respects and supports the freedom of all members of the University community to discuss any problem that presents itself.
当然, the ideas of different members of the collegiate community will often and quite naturally conflict. But it is not the proper role of the University to attempt to shield individuals from ideas and opinions they find unwelcome, 不愉快的, 甚至是非常无礼的. 虽然学校非常重视文明礼仪, and although all members of the University community share in the responsibility for maintaining a climate of mutual respect, concerns about civility and mutual respect can never be used as a justification for closing off discussion of ideas, however 进攻 or 不愉快的 those ideas may be to some members of our community.
网赌软件排行榜可能会限制违反法律的言论, 诬蔑特定个人的行为, 构成真正的威胁或骚扰, that unjustifiably invades substantial privacy or confidentiality interests, or that is otherwise directly incompatible with the University’s functioning. Cleveland State retains the commensurate right to regulate reasonably the time, 的地方, and manner of expression to ensure that it does not disrupt any ordinary University activities. But these regulations and exceptions should not unreasonably compromise the University’s commitment to a completely free and open discussion of ideas.
As a corollary to 网赌软件排行榜’s commitment to protect and promote free expression, members of the University community must also act in conformity with the principle of free expression. Although members of the University community are free to criticize and contest the views expressed on campus, and to criticize and contest speakers who are invited to express their views on campus, they may not obstruct or otherwise interfere with the freedom of others to express views they reject or even loathe. 为此目的, the University has a solemn responsibility not only to promote a lively and fearless freedom of debate and deliberation, 但也要在别人试图限制自由时保护这种自由.2
宪法第一修正案保护有争议的, 进攻, 激进言论, and no one has a constitutional right to protection from 进攻 expression, 很简单，因为这可能被理解为种族主义, 民族中心主义的, 性别歧视的, 反犹太主义, 同性恋, 对变性人感到恐惧或憎恨. 而文明, 尊重不同意见, and tolerance are important democratic virtues that are essential to civic participation, 这些价值观必须与有保障的言论自由齐头并进. While free speech resolutions might seem to favor some entrenched powers and established interests, 并坚持礼貌和沉默作为对他人的回应, 更边缘化的群体, we wish to affirm regulated free-speech rights for all of our community’s speakers, 以及网赌软件排行榜所有参与的观众的尊重和接受, 反过来. But these regulations and exceptions will not compromise the University’s commitment to a free and open discussion of ideas, even when the underlying sentiments are ones with which the university leadership may disagree.
网赌软件排行榜 will make every effort to ensure the safety and security of the university community, 包括受邀嘉宾, who have the right to express their views without obstruction or threats of vandalism or violence. This includes speakers who express views that many people may find morally repugnant or socially harmful. Our University and our State governing bodies have instituted Expressive Activity Policies, insurance policies for managing risks posed by speakers and demonstrators, 和一个会议事务部, 允许但管理校园言论自由.2 Freedom of expression is at the heart of education and democracy and 网赌软件排行榜 will protect this right in accordance with Constitutional law and its commitment to provide a high-quality education.
