The cardinal principle upon which our University is founded is to impart knowledge and learning to all men and women of all races without any distinction on the grounds of race, religious or political beliefs. These principles are enshrined in the University Law. Only through freedom of membership and freedom of enquiry and research can a university be drawn into the full ferment of thought from which new knowledge comes. Only if it adheres to those freedoms can it become truly great. If our staff and students are drawn from all parts of the world, then the mixture of international minds working together in an atmosphere of academic freedom can produce a university true to its ideals and meanings.
