In March, University of San Diego School Law Professor Thomas Smith found himself under investigation for a “racist” blog post with students calling for his resignation. The investigation has now ended with the finding that Smith’s speech is “protected by [USD’s] policy on academic freedom.” After all, as provost Gail F. Baker says, that “lies at the core of the mission of the University of San Diego.”
Great. But if academic freedom lies at the core of the mission of the University of San Diego, how come no one in the administration knows what it is?
I don't think I was obnoxious. Perhaps not my wittiest, but not obnoxious.
