MRU faculty concerned over new code of conduct

October 29, 2015

The faculty of Mount Royal University have voiced strong opposition to a new code of conduct introduced by the university’s board of governors, reports Metro News. According to the report, the faculty’s most prominent concern is that the new code may have adverse effects on academic freedom due to its vague wording on what constitutes professional “wrongdoing.” MRU Faculty Association President Marc Schroeder has also accused the new code of making it mandatory for faculty members to inform the university about any of their colleagues’ activities that might be construed under the already-vague concept of wrongdoing.
