What is Academic Freedom and why does it matter? What’s the big deal with tenure – and who, other than faculty, even cares? Professor Tony Rosso shares concerns over the future of academic freedom at universities and what’s at stake if it’s lost.

Dr. Tony Rosso received degrees in English from Ohio State University, San Francisco State, and the University of Maryland. He’s been teaching at Southern since 1987 and has been a long-time member of the AAUP, serving as Academic Freedom officer for many years.
