Wisconsin Alumni Association supports academic freedom

Reacting to proposed language in the state budget regarding tenure, The President’s Advisory Council of the Wisconsin Alumni Association has written a resolution in support of academic freedom.

The council declared its strong support for protection of tenure and urges Gov. Walker and the legislature “to ensure that state statues and policies do not weaken the protection of academic freedom, free speech, or the continual sifting and winnowing of the truth at the University of Wisconsin.”
