1. Walz, Jerald Henry. The Faculty Perceptions of Academic Freedom at Christian Colleges and Universities.

Degree: PhD, Not found, 2017, Virginia Tech

Academic freedom is a much-discussed topic in the literature. However, little empirical research has been performed that describes the faculty perceptions of academic freedom at Christian colleges and universities, a unique segment of institutions within US higher education. Specifically, little recent research has shown how faculty members at Christian colleges and universities define academic freedom, how they describe experiences where they encountered issues of academic freedom, and how they navigate the interaction between academic freedom and institutional religious doctrines (as found in official statements of faith). The purpose of this study was to describe and analyze how faculty members at Christian colleges and university perceive academic freedom. For this qualitative study, I employed the Critical Incident Technique (Flanagan, 1954) to collect data from full-time faculty members of Christian institutions. I present the findings discovered through this study, discuss their ramifications, offer recommendations, and draw conclusions. Advisors/Committee Members: Janosik, Steven M. (committeechair), Creamer, Elizabeth G. (committee member), Robbins, Claire Kathleen (committee member), Lowe, Verna J. (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: academic freedom; statements of faith; faculty; Christian college or university; definition; critical incident; navigation
