The Academic Freedom & Tenure Committee

The Academic Freedom & Tenure Committee (AF&T) helps faculty members with workplace problems.

These problems range from the application of University policy or the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA), to concerns about tenure, promotion, and performance reviews. Committee members are trained in key elements of University policy and the MoA. Where issues beyond their expertise or experience arise, AF&T has access to resources the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA).

The committee works on dozens of cases a year, and also advises the Board on the development and revision of relevant University policies.

Require support?

Contact Lori Curtis, Chair of AF&T, to have your case assigned to a committee member for support.

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.
