Advocating for Responsible Investment Practices

June 25th, 2024


UWOFA continues to support the Canadian Association of University Teachers in expressing concern about the forcible removal and heavy-handed arrests of peaceful pro-Palestinian student protesters across Canadian University campuses. Such actions, when there is no demonstrable threat to campus safety, conflict with the mission of post-secondary institutions – to foster dialogue, debate, and support academic freedom and free expression. Further, in response to recent and ongoing events on our campus and on campuses across Canada, UWOFA encourages ongoing dialogue and calls on the Western administration to reaffirm its commitment to transparency and adhere to the UNPRI Six Principles for Responsible Investment, to which it is a signatory.
