Academic Freedom as Citizens (AAUP Contract, pg. 76):
Bargaining unit members are citizens, members of the learned profession, and officers of the Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. When they speak or write as citizens, they should be free from institutional censorship or discipline, but their special position in the community imposes special obligations. As people of learning and educational officers, they should remember that the public may judge their profession and their institution by their utterances. Hence, they should at all times be accurate, should exercise appropriate restraint, should show respect for the opinions of others, and should make every effort to indicate that they are not institutional spokespersons.
