CAUT Votes to end Censure on U of T at the 91st CAUT Council

Update on the IHRP Scandal for the Month of November 2021

Last week, at the 91st Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) Council, the CAUT unanimously voted to end the censure on the University of Toronto. On November 25, CAUT announced its decision, giving praise to the University of Toronto Faculty, supporters, and CAUT members.

The censure had been on pause since September 17, as a result of Dr. Azarova being re-offered the position for Program Director of the International Human Rights Program (IHRP). In that same month, on September 8, the University of Toronto released revised Guidelines on Donations, which included new language aimed at discouraging donor interference in hiring decisions.

Ultimately, the CAUT determined that it was satisfied with the actions taken by the University and the new language in the University policy against donor influence. This possibly marks the end of a contentious issue within the University, stemming from our law school.
