HR 177: Select Committee on Academic Environment

H.R. 177, P.N. 1280 (ARMSTRONG) This would create a Select Committee to study whether state college and university faculty are competent and have knowledge of their subject matters and whether tenure and promotions reflect this, if students have an academic environment conducive to the expression of independent thought and that students are evaluated on their subject knowledge or ability to defend their perspective, and whether there is academic freedom to explore, express and practice independent thought. Committee members would be composed of four selected by the Speaker and three by the Minority Leader.
