On August 30, 2018, the provincial government released a mandate requiring all Universities and colleges to introduce a free speech policy by January 1, 2019. The policy must not only protect free speech, but also ensure that hate speech, discrimination and other illegal forms of speech are not allowed on campus. In view of this mandate, the Collegium of the University of St. Michael’s College voted to adopt the University of Toronto’s free speech policy, effective immediately.
The policy can be found here. If you have any questions about the adoption of this policy, please reach out to our Bursar, Effie Slapnicar.
