Academic Freedom Violated at University of Colorado

The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) joins its Colorado state conference in condemning the University of Colorado-Boulder's treatment of sociology professor Patricia Adler. Although the university has not made public its own account of what transpired between university representatives and Prof. Adler, reports in the media and the testimony of many faculty and students at Boulder make clear that there has been an unwarranted and egregious violation of her academic freedom, specifically her right as a faculty member to select her own instructional methods within the broad parameters of her discipline and university policies.
