Matters of academic freedom are important to the credibility of universities and the research they support. It is also important that we establish new and innovative partnerships to serve society.
To enable international experts to analyze and comment, President Max Blouw of Wilfrid Laurier University and President Feridun Hamdullahpur of the University of Waterloo will co-host with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada a public conference in September to address academic freedom in the context of partnership agreements. Speakers will include governance experts, representatives of the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and the broader academic community.
We are confident that a full and informed public discussion of these important issues will support the integrity of the Balsillie School governance model and provide valuable insights for all concerned.
