Discourse #2: Academic Freedom and Its Limits in a Catholic University

The current discourse “Academic Freedom and Its Limits in a Catholic University” will explore the boundary between academic inquiry/classroom teaching and the doctrines and teachings of the church on certain potentially controversial issues. (As a case study, we will focus on the issue of contraception and world overpopulation.) The discussion will include Catholic resources such as Ex Corde Ecclesiae and Humanae Vitae as well as statements on academic freedom in university faculty handbooks, the AAUP, the ACC&U, and biology research publications on the issue of world overpopulation.


Please read (and bring) your university's faculty handbook statement on Academic Freedom.
