UWO, Massey join Scholars at Risk program

September 30, 2009

The University of Western Ontario is the second Canadian post-secondary institution to join the Scholars at Risk program, an international network of colleges and universities working together to promote academic freedom and defend the human rights of scholars around the world. Program members can help qualified scholars escape restrictive and dangerous conditions in their native countries and allow them to continue their scholarly work by offering temporary or short-term academic positions. The other Canadian member is Massey College at the University of Toronto. Western News
