Survey on academic freedom

Academic freedom is a universal right that all staff working in higher education acknowledge as an essential component of academic life, both as an individual liberty with respect to their teaching and research, and in terms of institutional autonomy and governance.

Researchers at the University of Lincoln have obtained European Union funding for two Marie Curie fellowships, to examine the de facto protection for such freedom. To do this they have devised an online survey to gather data on the knowledge, experience and opinions of academic staff with regards to academic freedom.

All academic staff at Warwick are invited to complete the survey, which is completely anonymous, it can be accessed here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AcademicFreedomSurvey until 31 May 2015.
