Academic Freedom Statement


Fulton-Montgomery Community College fully endorses the free exchange of ideas and the exploration of topics and issues on campus and in the global context. To support such exchange of ideas, the College and the Board of Trustees support the following statement regarding academic freedom.


Academic Freedom is a time-honored responsibility and special privilege for all members of the academy including full-time and part-time faculty, staff and students that protects the following activities:

  • Providing constructive criticism on academic and institutional policies and procedures and the ability to recommend such policies and procedures to FM;
  • Teaching classes with available instructional resources and pedagogies that promote critical thinking and investigation in their respective disciplines;
  • Conducting academic research;
  • And, maintaining authority to uphold academic standards and assign appropriate grades.
