Share your thoughts on proposed amendments to the Policy on Academic Freedom by October 24

September 26, 2022

Students, faculty and staff at UBC are invited to comment on proposed changes to the university’s Policy on Academic Freedom by October 24, 2022.

Academic freedom is one of UBC’s five core values. The university has an Academic Freedom Policy in place to ensure community members are granted certain rights and privileges essential to the fulfilment of teaching and the pursuit of knowledge.

The Academic Freedom Policy has not been updated since its inception in 1977. In response to feedback from the community, proposed amendments have been made to the policy.

Your feedback will help ensure that UBC continues to uphold the academic freedom of its scholarly community.

For more information about the policy, and to share your feedback, visit: https://senate.ubc.ca/consultation-policy-on-academic-freedom/.

Thank you in advance for your support.
