Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne releases statement on academic freedom


Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne released an institutional statement on the exercise of academic freedom earlier this week. The cégep released the statement in response to recent concerns among instructors regarding their freedom to choose course content and discussion topics with their students. A working group drafted the statement to specify the fundamental principles and conditions surrounding academic freedom, as well as the college’s formal commitment to protecting it in educational activities. Sébastien Piché, directeur des etudes du Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne, stated that institutional leadership will work with the community to guide teachers as they address sensitive topics in class and support students who might feel offended.
