The Academic Grievance // Forum Overview

“The academic workplace is uniquely characterized by academic freedom, collegial governance, and the job processes and protections associated with peer-based determinations of promotion and tenure. Through presentations, plenary discussions, and small group sessions, the 2019 CAUT Forum for Senior Grievance Officers will explore recent and longstanding issues associated with the distinct aspects of academic staff employment.”
