Academic freedom at NYIT is firmly rooted in two principles: the need to create an environment where information and ideas can flow freely, in which students are able to experience a wide range of points of view; and the willingness to be respectful of the culture of the host country and that of the United States. (Also see Policies and Procedure Manual, A-18). The student handbook translates the rights of freedom of opinion and access to information into clearly expressed educational values. The handbook alerts students that a university education will challenge their conventional attitudes. The University's goal is not to alter beliefs or values but rather to produce globally aware, responsible graduates with the capacity for independent critical judgment who exhibit respectful understanding of diverse points of view and tolerance for perspectives that might differ from their own.

N.B.: NYIT-Vancouver faculty should refer to Academic Freedom in the Faculty Handbook (U.S. Campuses).
