American Islamic College (AIC) is committed to the freedom of academic inquiry and intellectual expression. Faculty and students are encouraged to research and seek knowledge outside the bounds of what is common as AIC believes such inquiry is the hallmark of education.
Only in the case that a proposal for an invited speaker or written work incites violence and hate, and causes members of the AIC campus to feel unsafe, does AIC reserve the right to respectfully decline such proposals. A topic that is controversial in nature does not apply. Where there is a fine line, a college committee of faculty and appropriate staff members will discuss the case and make a decision.
AIC is also committed to securing this freedom of academic and intellectual inquiry by ensuring that its students and faculty do not feel belittled, threatened, or traumatized by proposals for speakers and written work that reveal evidence of supporting hate crimes, sexual violence, racial and religious discrimination, etc.
