UCalgary statement on academic freedom in support of Dr. Melanee Thomas

Nov. 29, 2019

Academic freedom is a cornerstone of all great universities. Academic staff have the right to  examine, question, teach, learn, investigate,  speculate, comment, criticize, write, publish and the like freely, without pressure, direct or indirect, to conform to or defer to prescribed doctrines. We support and respect Dr. Thomas’ right to academic freedom, and further her right to free expression. 

 

Dru Marshall, Provost and Vice-President (Academic)
