The National Academies has issued guidance on the use of academic guidance, saying that “academic information” should be “considered” in order to guide a person’s life.
The guidance, issued by the National Academs Office of Public Affairs and Technology Policy, states that it is important for students to be aware of their academic and professional responsibilities and to be “informed” of how they should use that information.
The guidelines state that “the use of ‘academic’ information, when it is used to guide students, should be consistent with the values and beliefs of the National Academy of Sciences and should not be interpreted as a substitute for the advice and guidance of qualified, credentialed professional advisors.”
The guidelines also state that the “use of ‘Academics’ and ‘Academia'” should be understood to mean “any individual or group that has attained a certain level of competence and distinction.”
The National Academics advises that a person should be guided to “do the best” and “do his or her best” in their professional lives.
However, the guidance says that the use “of academic guidance” can also include the “deliberation, direction, guidance, and supervision of an individual or an institution or individual’s activities.”
“While a student is pursuing an academic degree, the person should consider whether the guidance should be used to provide the student with an education or training that he or she will be able to use for a career, and whether the student should be advised to undertake or participate in activities that are aligned with the goals of the educational program.”
In the future, the guidelines say, students should also be advised “that the use, interpretation, and interpretation of academic information should not result in any undue influence or interference with a student’s rights under the U.S. Constitution, including, but not limited to, the First Amendment, the right to freedom of speech and expression, the rights to due process and equal protection under the law, and the right not to be subjected to discrimination.”
