News / Carleton on probation

At its last meeting of 2017, CAUT Council considered a motion of censure against the administration of Carleton University because the university’s board of governors’ “code of conduct” suppresses the academic freedom of faculty representatives, and runs contrary to principles of openness and transparency needed for governing a public institution. Ahead of the Council meeting in November, the university administration committed to proposed changes to the code but the revisions have yet to be adopted by the board. After a lengthy debate, Council delegates adopted a motion to censure Carleton by Jan. 31, 2018 if the revisions to the board’s code of conduct as presented to CAUT Council on Nov. 25 are not implemented.
