We need a judicious approach to values that matter: equity & academic freedom.
Binaries, either/or, unhelpful
Don’t @ me: I said *judicious*.
I read/weigh everything, friends & critics alike, incl. on whether academic-administrators have academic freedom
“Learning to say goodbye to academic freedom:
It is an adjustment when an academic becomes a senior administrator, as they don’t have the same academic freedoms they did as professors.” https://www.universityaffairs.ca/opinion/dispatches-academic-freedom/learning-to-say-goodbye-to-academic-freedom/

There are differences between free speech, hate speech and academic freedom—and they matter, by Dominic O'Sullivan:
“In a university, the test of a reasonable opinion is higher. One cannot say whatever one likes and call it academic freedom” https://theconversation.com/there-are-differences-between-free-speech-hate-speech-and-academic-freedom-and-they-matter-124764

Are students/academics/staff/administrators accountable/req to adhere to human rights & codes of fair conduct?
Can a physician who is an administrator suspend the Hippocratic Oath?
Can a scholar who is an administrator ignore research ethics?
