Academic Freedom and Free Speech on Campus – From the AAUP

Monday, February 19th, 2018

The following is a condensed and edited version of “Academic Freedom in the Age of Trump,” an interview originally published in October 2017 on BillMoyers.com. Moyers interviewing Professor Emeritus Joan W.

Bill Moyers: Professor Scott, connect these dots for us. What’s the pattern?

Joan W. Scott: The pattern is an attack on the university as a place where critical thinking occurs, where free thought is encouraged. This is not new; it’s been going on for a number of years. It can be seen in the defunding of state universities. It can been seen in attacks on free speech at the university, particularly on the sup­posed tenured “radicals” who are teaching in universities. The Trump election brought it the fore and made it possible for a number of different groups whose aim is to stop the teaching of critical thinking to launch direct attacks.

In a piece he wrote several years ago, “Workplace Bullying and Ethical Leadership” (Journal of Values-Based Leadership, 2008), Professor David Yamada  “suggested that a strong test of an organization’s values and ethics is how it handles a case of severe workplace bullying perpetrated by one of its leading executives or ‘rainmakers.’ I stand behind that point today. Institutions that sweep work abuse under the rug because the perpetrator is at or near the top of the organizational chart are among the lowest of the low.”
