HxA conducts the Campus Expression Survey on an annual basis to measure the extent to which students in the U.S. feel comfortable discussing various topics on their campuses. But what is the state of campus expression for one of our closest neighbors, Canada?

In this session, two groups of researchers will present their findings. The first, led by Prof. Martin Drapeau of McGill University, will share the results of a recent survey of Canadian university students’ attitudes on issues of open inquiry. The second, led by Prof. Christopher Dummitt of Trent University, will address findings on how Canadian professors view their roles, the extent to which they support heterodox values, and the level of political diversity within the profession.
