Policy 2I: Institutional Neutrality

The Board of Regents adopts the principle of "institutional neutrality" in social and political matters, unless it determines that the issue directly affects the university, is detrimental to the achievement of the university's mission and purposes, and/or threatens academic freedom.

Therefore, the Board may approve exceptions to this principle, based on compelling evidence that a position or action is in the best interest of the university.
