Chapter 1-1000: Relations with Students

APM-010, Academic Freedom, provides the statement of the University’s principles with regard to academic freedom and student scholarly inquiry. Student freedom of scholarly inquiry is derived from and protected by faculty academic freedom. It also carries the same responsibilities. With regard to students’ participation in research, APM-010 states that “Students’ freedom of inquiry while conducting research may not be abridged by decisions contrary to accepted scholarly and professional standards.”

In addition, APM-015, The Faculty Code of Conduct, describes the responsibilities of the faculty in relation to students. It sets forth standards of professional responsibilities, ethical principles, and unacceptable faculty conduct in relation to students.

APM-025, Conflict of Commitment and Outside Activities of Faculty Members, provides general guidance for involving students in faculty outside professional activities. (APM-025-50.) Prior approval is required when involving students in outside professional activities.
