Public Comment Policy

This policy asserts Macquarie University’s commitment to the principles of academic freedom, and its expectation that staff will challenge society’s ideas and contribute to open debate by commenting publicly within areas of their professional expertise.

Because academic freedom has associated responsibilities, this policy also aims to clarify the obligations of Macquarie University staff when commenting in public fora, including in the media.

The full Public Comment Policy is available from Macquarie University’s ‘Policy Central‘ website.
