University Values e-bulletin header

The DECEMBER 2013 edition of University Values is available here.

UNIVERSITY VALUES is an electronic bulletin featuring articles, essays and announcements promoting discussion and understanding of university values - including access, accountability/ transparency, academic freedom/quality, autonomy/good governance, and social responsibility. SAR coordinates the production and circulation of the bulletin, in cooperation with an international network of contributing organizations and individuals. The views presented are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent SAR or its respective members.

Submission Requirements
Length: We invite short articles of 500-700 words maximum. Longer articles will not be considered for publication in the bulletin.
Topic: We invite submissions on an academic freedom related issue of your choice. The article could, alternatively, contain news on important events, situations emerging in your region or specific countries or urgent appeals for scholars or universities in distress.
Deadline: November 18, 2013.
Contact: Please submit articles by email to Please enter “University Values Submission” in the subject line of your email. 

The University Values Editing Committee will select up to six articles for publication in the bulletin. 
It is our belief that a greater sharing of information about academic freedom and higher education values will help foster a greater understanding of the challenges we all face and will enhance global efforts to address these challenges. We hope you will help us make the bulletin a success.

Essays are invited for the Spring 2014 edition by April 15, 2014.
