Do you believe that BYU gives full academic freedom to its students and/or faculty, as described in Section 2.A.28 of the NWCCU’s Accreditation Standards? Why or why not?

Not at all. I had to leave the school when I left the Church because I was told that former members couldn’t get an ecclesiastical endorsement, even if I was willing to continue following the Honor Code guidelines.

Do you have any other thoughts regarding the accreditation of BYU or your experiences regarding BYU and its Honor Code?

I’d really like to see BYU’s practices reviewed. I think they’re oppressive and reward behavior that is dishonest and hypocritical, while punishing students that are honest and open about their beliefs.
