Resolution from the floor on Classified, Proprietary and other Publication Restricted Research, March 16, 2005

Whereas the Manoa Faculty Senate in January 1986 resolved that "The University will accept no contract or grant which requires classification or limitation in publication," and

Whereas the Manoa Faculty Senate in December 2002 reaffirmed its opposition to classified, proprietary and other publication-restricted research being conducted on the Manoa campus, and

Whereas the conduct of publication-restricted research is incompatible with the fundamental values of a university and with the strategic imperatives of this campus to "publicize our research more widely to the local, national and international communities" and to "promote the free exchange of ideas," and

Whereas in March 2005 the Manoa Faculty Senate has affirmed that the University of Hawaii at Manoa should support only research for which there is a reasonable expectation that timely publication of the results of the research will not be restricted by its sponsor,

Therefore be it resolved that

The Manoa Faculty Senate stands opposed in principle to the establishment of any research entity that includes conducting classified research of a sort for which there is no reasonable expectation that timely publication of the research results will be restricted by its sponsor.

therefore be it resolved that

The Manoa Faculty Senate stands opposed in principle to the establishment of any research unit on campus that does not preclude the carrying out of classified research under its auspices.
