About the Harry Crowe Foundation

In November of 2002, the governing Council of the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) established a new foundation to carry out education and research on the role of post-secondary teaching and research in contemporary society.  Named the Harry Crowe Foundation, after the person whose academic freedom case gave rise to the modern day CAUT, the foundation will sponsor research and conduct conferences on issues in post-secondary education, such as freedom of academic expression, social factors affecting research priorities, institutional autonomy and governance, and scholarly communication in a digital age.
