As Canada’s Open Online University, Athabasca University (AU) is dedicated to the removal of barriers that restrict access to and success in university-level study and to increasing equality and equity of educational opportunities for adult learners worldwide. As an autonomous and self-governed University, AU is steadfastly committed to embracing and protecting freedom of enquiry and freedom of expression for all team members in the AU community, our learners, alumni, and visitors to our University within the limits of Canadian and Alberta law, even when the views expressed may not be shared with nor represent those of Athabasca University. The right to academic freedom is addressed separately in the context of the collective agreement with the Athabasca University Faculty Association. In all things, AU’s actions are guided by our I-CARE values of Integrity, Community, Adaptability, Respect, and Excellence.
Athabasca University upholds the following principles and guidelines.
