Freedom of Speech

Main page content

The College is strongly committed to the principle of freedom of speech and expression.  It fosters an environment where all of its members can participate fully in the life of the College, and where each member feels confident and able to research, question and test received wisdom, and to express new ideas and controversial or unpopular opinions, without fear of isolation, marginalisation or discrimination.  Equally, the College expects its members to receive and respond to intellectual and ideological challenges in a constructive and peaceable way.  The College also acknowledges its statutory duties in protecting its members and other people from “radicalisation”, which in this context means being drawn in by others to support terrorism, or to commit acts of terrorism.
