The Yale-NUS faculty, in their first vote as a collegial body, unanimously approved the following Core Statement on Freedom of Expression:
We are firmly committed to the free expression of ideas in all forms-a central tenet of liberal arts education. There are no questions that cannot be asked, no answers that cannot be discussed and debated. This principle is a cornerstone of our institution.
The faculty also also voted unanimously to recommend that this statement be included in the faculty and student handbooks which are currently being drafted.
