fbpx University-Wide Statement of Rights and Responsibilities | Harvard Kennedy School

The central functions of an academic community are learning, teaching, research and
scholarship. By accepting membership in the University, an individual joins a community
ideally characterized by free expression, free inquiry, intellectual honesty, respect for the
dignity of others, and openness to constructive change. The rights and responsibilities
exercised within the community must be compatible with these qualities.
