"A.A.U.P. Statement on Academic Freedom Study" in The Quad Angles (April 5, 1966), 1.

The AAUP Statement on academic freedom included a section "IV. Off-Campus Freedom of Students" that said students' off- campus enjoyed the same rights as any other citizen, and they should not be placed in double jeopardy--i.e. penalized by both municipal and college authorities--if they commit an illegal act off campus except "only when the institution's interests as an academic community are distinct from those of the general community should the special authority of the institution be asserted."
