Academic institutions have long been sites of advancement, progression and social change. Historically, universities have been sites for the emergence of many rights movements throughout North America, from the organizing of protests to the critical production of academic literature on social justice issues.

But where are universities now?

  • Have the reputation of universities shifted from sites of change to sites of oppression?
  • What is the current relationship between human rights and universities?
  • Are universities serving as progressive engines in the area of social justice?
  • Or are universities a constraint in the fight for human rights?
  • Are universities as connected with communities as they should be to drive social change?
  • Can universities apply academic and administrative knowledge towards social justice?
