Freedom of Speech Policy

The University has developed a draft Freedom of Speech Policy and now seeks staff review and feedback.

The proposed Freedom of Speech policy will add clarity to the University’s role in protecting freedom of speech and the safeguards we have in place. The objective of the policy is to establish a framework that serves Victorian, Australian and international communities and the public interest by promoting critical and free enquiry, informed intellectual discourse and public debate within the University and in the wider society.

The draft policy will be open for comment until Thursday 2 May 2019. Please send feedback to policy-help@unimelb.edu.au.

Any questions about the policy can be addressed to Richard James at rjames@unimelb.edu.au.
