Statement from Principal Woolf regarding HLTH 102

February 4, 2015
Originally published in The Gazette

I became aware today of the situation regarding HLTH 102 and have asked the provost and vice-principal (academic) to work with Arts and Science to look into this matter and gather more information.

The university is committed to the academic freedom of our faculty members; at the same time, the university expects that faculty members will present intellectually rigorous research and course material and that they will present available scientific evidence objectively and declare their biases.

The university also expects that courses meet the needs of our students in terms of promoting critical thinking, independent judgment, and discussion.
