1.6 Statement of academic and artistic freedom
Rose Bruford College defends the principle of freedom of thought, practice and expression within its academic and artistic community, while recognising its responsibilities in promoting tolerance, mutual respect, and cultural understanding. Material is chosen for study and performance on the basis of its value in examining a broad range of practices and ideas.
From time to time, such study material may challenge students' perspectives and values. The College expects students to engage with chosen material without censorship, and encourages a spirit of openness, recognition of creative expression and intellectual debate. At the same time it seeks to ensure that the choice, interpretation and treatment of such material is not gratuitous, exploitative or illegal.
