Professional Freedom & Responsibility (PF&R)


Dean Cummings PF&R Chair

What is Professional Freedom & Responsibility (PF&R)?

Professional freedom and responsibility encompasses research, teaching and service and is related to MCS members’ interaction with the media professions through preparation of students for media careers, research examining media roles and responsibilities, and service to the professions through engagement and training. Service in support of professional freedom and responsibility is an essential expectation of every member of MCS. Members should work in support of the principles of professional freedom and responsibility within this organization, at their home institutions, and in society at large.
