Expression and Free Speech

A cornerstone or tenet of being a university is that, within the bounds of Canadian law, university policies and collective agreements, everyone on campus should feel free to express their ideas. Mount Royal takes a collective approach to supporting expression and free speech on campus.

Here is a Q&A about expression and free speech in general and at MRU.

Building on the work that began with the approved Expression and Free Speech Policy (Policy), a Presidential Task Force on Freedom of Expression made up of students, staff and faculty was created.

The Presidential Task Force on Freedom of Expression was struck to engage with the campus and listen to feedback on the Policy, recommend Policy updates that continue to meet the ministerial mandate around freedom of expression and advise on the roll-out of the final Policy, including campus education on how best to put the Policy into action.

The Task Force would like feedback from students and employees about the Expression and Free Speech policy. Please provide your feedback here.
