academic freedom and university autonomy

university autonomy:

University autonomy can be defined as the overall ability of the university to act by its own choices in pursuit of its mission, or the power of the university to govern itself without outside control (Muda , 2008, p.1), based on the opinion of Badalona, et al., is an idea that is restricted, inferring to the rights of universities to be free from interference coming from external forces in terms of academic matters. It is therefore the right and freedom of the academic community to participate fully without external pressure in charting and applying policies and programmes set by the universities themselves. Further he hypothesised that autonomy can only be put to practice when university policies and the implementation of rules and regulations regarding what should be the standard norms are not dictated by outside forces except for those who fund the universities.
