Everyone assumes that part-time faculty should enjoy a full measure of academic freedom. The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) has consistently argued for it. Martin Michaelson's draft "Academic Freedom Policy and Procedures," a touchstone for this symposium, accords academic freedom through contract to full-time and part-time faculty without distinction. A recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education raised the alarm that "To Many Adjunct Professors, Academic Freedom Is a Myth;" nowhere did it question the normative claim that an adjunct should enjoy complete academic freedom.
