  • 2008 Annual Meeting Resolutions | AAUP
    first Annual Meeting in 2005 the American Association of University Professors adopted a resolution calling on local communities and state officials to reject proposals that seek to suppress discussion of evolution in our public schools as inimical to principles of academic freedom Efforts to pass legislation specifically requiring the teaching of intelligent design have generally been thwarted However several state legislatures including those in Alabama Florida Louisiana and Missouri have recently taken up new proposals that purport to guarantee academic freedom and critical thinking in the teaching of science by ostensibly protecting according to the Alabama bill the right of teachers to scientifically critique prevailing scientific theories and the right of students to hold a particular position on any views But the underlying purpose of these proposals is to make it possible to have intelligent design offered as an alternative to evolution Such efforts run counter to the overwhelming scientific consensus regarding evolution and are inconsistent with a proper understanding of the meaning of academic freedom It is for scientists and not legislatures to say what is science The Ninety fourth Annual Meeting of the American Association of University Professors therefore opposes as have previous annual meetings efforts by state legislatures to determine what scientific ideas widely accepted or not should be taught in colleges and universities Higher Education in Iran The Ninety fourth Annual Meeting of the American Association of University Professors observes with dismay practices by the government of Iran which discriminate against the country s citizens belonging to religious or ethnic minorities including unjustly denying them opportunities for education at all levels We note in particular the worsening situation of Iran s Baha i community whose members are subject to constant harassment and punitive measures by Iranian authorities and who are wrongly kept out of universities or prevented from completing their studies We urge the government of Iran consistent with the constitution of Iran to remove barriers that deny access to higher education on religious or ethnic grounds and to ensure for members of the Baha i community the same rights accorded to other citizens of Iran Loyalty Oaths Two recent cases involving administrative decisions in the California State University system to deny employment to faculty members who sought to attach qualifying language to the state mandated loyalty oath for public employees once again highlight the problematic nature of these oaths The Ninety fourth Annual Meeting of the American Association of University Professors affirms its belief that refusal to sign a loyalty oath does not justify the refusal to appoint a faculty member or the termination of faculty appointments Campus Safety The horrific shootings at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in April 2007 and at Northern Illinois University this past February and the murders of students in separate incidents near the campuses of Auburn University the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in March have prompted renewed efforts to keep our colleges and universities both safe and open

    Iranian journalism student on grounds of having worked against the sovereignty of the country Particularly outrageous is the case of Dr Haleh Esfandiari director of the Middle East Program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington D C She was prevented from leaving Iran last December after one of her periodic visits to her elderly mother was questioned at length over several months by Iranian intelligence officials about the activities and programs of the Wilson Center and was jailed in the notorious Evin prison on May 8 We are appalled that a scholar can be imprisoned because government authorities are displeased with scholarly projects with which she is associated Such action not only injures the individuals but also potentially impairs opportunities for the educational and scientific exchanges that are vital to our academic endeavors This meeting joins with others in calling upon the government of Iran to release Dr Esfandiari immediately from prison and allow her to return to her academic work in the United States We also urge Iranian authorities to free the other researcher and journalists who have been detained and allow them to leave Iran if that is their wish We urge the government of the United States to be unremitting in peaceful efforts to secure their freedom In Appreciation of Duane Storti In 2004 Professor Duane Storti president of the AAUP chapter at the University of Washington but acting on his own initiative brought a class action lawsuit against the university for violating provisions of the faculty handbook by having failed to provide a two percent salary increase to faculty for the 2002 03 academic year In an October 2005 decision a state court ruled that the university had breached its mandatory duty to award faculty an annual increase as required by the faculty handbook In March 2006 the University of Washington agreed to pay 17 45 million in back pay and interest to settle the lawsuit The Ninety third Annual Meeting of the American Association of University Professors commends Professor Storti for his singular achievement in protecting the economic interests of the faculty of the University of Washington and the authority of the university s faculty handbook We applaud his initiative in behalf of the University of Washington faculty and of the profession The Fiftieth Anniversary of Sweezy v New Hampshire This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the United States Supreme Court s decision in Sweezy v New Hampshire In an investigation conducted by the attorney general of New Hampshire to determine whether there were subversive persons in the state Paul Sweezy a visiting scholar at the University of New Hampshire who had given a lecture on Marxism answered most questions asked of him but refused to answer questions related to the content of the lecture Ruling in favor of Sweezy the court expressly recognized for the first time that college teachers may claim legal protection for their expressions and affiliations Chief Justice Earl Warren writing for the majority declared that

    and Government Restraints In the last few years increased restrictions that the federal government has placed on scholarly activities have presented serious challenges to academic freedom First in the name of national security foreign scholars who have been appointed to faculty positions at American universities or invited to academic conferences have been denied visas on the basis of their perceived political beliefs or associations Second even though the administration concedes that too many government documents have been classified it has nonetheless raised the number of classified documents to record levels and has removed previously unclassified documents from the public domain Third in a specific case government agents investigated a faculty member who is critical of U S policy toward Venezuela Investigators questioned the content of his courses and raised the possibility that his views had been improperly influenced by the interference of a foreign government Agents interviewed not only the faculty member but his students as well Actions such as these threaten and curtail academic freedom They restrain scholars and teachers from pursuing truth and expressing it as they deem appropriate This annual meeting reaffirms the views on academic freedom expressed by previous annual meetings and in reports of the AAUP s Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure that in these critical times the need is for more not less freedom of inquiry and expression It considers the encouragement of these freedoms to be essential to our national well being Jane Buck Jane Buck is the first president of the American Association of University Professors to have served for three two year terms In this service she has advocated the Association s principles at home and abroad Her efforts in behalf of historically black colleges and universities before and during her presidency have been especially noteworthy So also has
