Free Speech Is Not an Academic Value - Chronicle - Stanley Fish
Accurate speech is, free inquiry is, but free speech is an extracurricular value. The responsibility falls to the administrators:

>My advice to administrators: Stop thinking of yourselves as in-house philosophers or free-speech champions or dispensers of moral wisdom, and accept your responsibility as managers of crowd-control, an art with its own history and analytical tools, and one that you had better learn and learn quickly.

Digital Humanities and the Erosion of Inquiry - Hybrid Pedagogy
Just say no and get on with the work. "Both Jesse and I have watched teachers and students be silenced, cowed into conformity, broken by the need to please their peer reviewers, their instructors, their administrations. Hybrid Pedagogy is an effort — however small, however emergent — to provide a space where academic voices can be heard in important, authentic ways."
