Academic Freedom

 

In institutions of higher education, like America Huntington University, the principle of Academic Freedom is essential to the search for truth and its exposition. Freedom in research is fundamental to the advancement of knowledge. The right to Academic Freedom in teaching is fundamental for the protection of the rights of the faculty and of the students in the educational process.

These concepts of Academic Freedom are promoted at America Huntington University and are elaborated as follows:

• The teacher is entitled to full freedom in research and in publication of the results; subject to the adequate performance of the teacher’s other academic duties. The faculty member may take on additional employment, including research for pecuniary return, without the approval of the university’s officer or President of the university, provided it does not interfere with his/her duties at the university.

• Teachers are entitled to freedom in the classroom to discuss their subject, but should exercise this freedom in a responsible manner.

• Faculty members may exercise their rights as citizens when speaking or writing as citizens and should be free from institutional censorship or discipline, but the faculty member’s special position in the community imposes special obligations. As a member of the teaching profession, and as a representative of an educational institution, the faculty member should remember that the public may judge his/her profession and his/her institution by his/her utterances. Hence, the faculty member should at all times be accurate, exercise appropriate restraint, show respect for the opinion of others, and make every effort to indicate that (s)he is not speaking for the university

• Any faculty member who believes that his/her rights have been abridged or ignored by an administrative officer or employees of America Huntington University and who is unable to obtain redress which is satisfactory to the faculty member within his/her own department, shall have the right to appeal to the President of the university.

Student Records

 

Student records are confidential and are maintained and released in accordance with applicable law. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, Public Law 93-380, as amended(commonly referred to as the Buckley Amendment), generally prohibits the release of information about students and former students without their consent to parents, spouses, military, law enforcement, prospective employers, federal investigators, or other parties. This Act also assures the student of the right of access to, challenge of, and review of educational records.

Educational records are defined as- those records, files, documents and other materials which:

• contain information directly related to a student, and

• are maintained by the University or by a person acting for the University.

The Buckley Amendment assures students' right to privacy and confidentiality and is instituted to protect each student. If a student believes that his/her record contains inaccurate information, this matter should be brought to the attention of the Director of Admissions and Records. If the problem cannot be informally resolved, the student should follow the official procedure (a copy of which is available in the Office of Admissions and Records) for a resolution of the problem.

Student records normally include documents filed for admission to the University, grade reports, permanent records of academic work completed, transcripts received from schools and other universities and colleges attended, test scores, counseling information, correspondence and petitions related to the student. These documents will normally include, but not be limited to, the name, address, telephone, birth date, residence classification, sex, past and current enrollment, academic and attendance status, educational benefits, ethnic background, high school graduation, university major and the identification number of a student.

Information which cannot be classified as student records is:

• Information provided by the student's parents in connection with financial aid;

• Confidential letters of recommendation on file prior to January 1, 1975;

• Information maintained by a university official or employee which remains in his/her

sole possession;

• Information about the student maintained by a physician, psychiatrist, psychologist

or

other professional acting in his/her professional capacity for the University, and

• Information about the student maintained by the University in the normal course of business pertaining to the student's employment, if he/she is employed by the University.
