The Winds of Freedom

Gerhard Casper

Yale University Press

This chapter presents former Stanford University president Gerhard Casper’s inaugural address on October 2, 1992. He explains the meaning of the “winds of freedom” as the short expression of principle to guide Stanford University. He says that a university’s freedom must first and foremost be pursuit of knowledge free from constraints as to sources and fields. A university must be free to challenge established orthodoxy and new orthodoxy; a university’s freedom must also be the freedom of its members, faculty, and students to think and speak for themselves.
