Academic Freedom

Academic freedom at Bryan University is defined as the right to teach, learn, discuss, work, and publish without fear of reprisal or sanction. Faculty and staff are empowered to full freedom in teaching, research, publication, and externship activities, subject to the limitations imposed by professional responsibility and the law. 

Bryan University recognizes the utility of artificial intelligence (AI) tools in both academic settings and as part of our daily lives. In an effort to support a robust learning environment that adapts to changing technologies, instructors have the autonomy, under Academic Freedom, to incorporate AI tools. Some examples include helping students develop skills in leveraging AI or using these tools to help students learn about their fields or course content.
