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?
Graduation from a University should not require blind obedience to a particular religious faith. Student who question the tenets of Mormonism are routinely expelled and lose college credit by transferring to another university. Professors are also fired when they question Mormonism. A university should allow free thought and inquiry. That is the purpose and value of a University education.
