UQÀM adopts University Academic Freedom Policy


The Université du Québec à Montréal’s Board of Governors recently adopted Politique no 2 sur la liberté académique universitaire, a university academic freedom policy, as required by the Government of Québec. The policy applies to any person who is engaged in activities that contribute to the mission of UQÀM and stipulates that these persons must recognize and advocate for academic freedom. This ensures that members of the UQÀM community can pursue teaching, research, and creation without doctrinal, ideological, or moral constraints. UQÀM Recteur Stéphane Pallage said that he hopes this policy will aid in the free flow of ideas and foster a diversity of viewpoints at the university.
