The Academic Freedom & Tenure Committee

The Academic Freedom & Tenure Committee (AF&T, for short) helps faculty members having problems involving University policy or the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA), or other concerns related to your conditions of employment, such as those relating to tenure, promotion, and performance reviews.

Tenured faculty members from across the University are trained in key elements of University policy and the MoA. Where issues beyond their expertise or experience arise, they have access to the resources of the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT).

The committee works on dozens of cases a year, and also plays an advisory role in the development and revision of relevant University policies.

For more information, contact committee chair Lori Curtis, or read more about what confidential support from the committee looks like.

If you have a concern with a policy itself, rather than the implementation of policy in a specific case, please contact a member of the Board of Directors or the Equity Committee.
