The Centre for Human Rights (CHR) contributes to York University’s vision of social justice and accessible education. We strive to build a respectful, equitable, diverse and inclusive (REDI) community by advancing, promoting, and upholding human rights at York in accordance with provincial human rights legislation and the University’s policies.
Guided by our principles, the CHR:
- Supports the University’s administration in developing and implementing policies, practices, guidelines and procedures.
- Educates the York community on their human rights responsibilities and obligations and related human rights issues.
- Receives and processes human rights concerns and complaints brought forward by current students, faculty and staff.
- Researches human rights topics and best practices for use in its policy advice, case resolution, and educational programming.
