Academic Freedom and Tenure: Grove City College

Report on the 1962 termination of a faculty member by the administration of Grove City College without due process. The dismissal action in this case was accompanied by collateral controversy, disclosure of unusual attendant circumstances, and frequent display of emotion. Many of these elements were reported in the press and by radio and television broadcast. Therefore, the investigating committee additionally issued  a set of Supplementary Observations and these are included in this report..

Censure and Sanction Actions

Today, delegates to the 102nd Annual Meeting of the AAUP voted to place the College of Saint Rose and the University of Missouri (Columbia) on the AAUP’s list of administrations censured for violating standards of academic freedom and tenure. The annual meeting also voted to remove from the censure list two institutions: Metropolitan Community College in Missouri and Grove City College in Pennsylvania. Grove City College had been on the censure list since 1963, longer than any other institution.
