Department of Rhetoric & Writing

The Department of Rhetoric and Writing supports the recent Faculty Council’s resolution defending academic freedom to teach about race and gender justice and critical race theory, the full text of which is available here.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Faculty Council resolutely rejects any attempts by bodies external to the faculty to restrict or dictate the content of university curriculum on any matter, including matters related to racial and social justice, and will stand firm against any and all encroachment on faculty authority including by the legislature or the Board of Regents. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Faculty Council stands with our K-12 colleagues throughout the country who may be affected by this kind of pernicious legislation when they seek to teach the truth in U.S. history and civics education.
