Thesis title: The Shortcomings of Canadian Human Rights Legislation: Addressing Discrimination on Public University Campuses

Supervisor: Dr. Kelly Blidook

While research has been conducted on freedom of speech on university campuses, and the application of the Charter and other forms of human rights legislation to post-secondary educational institutions, there is a gap in research on th existing mechanisms designed to address discrimination and human rights violations on university campuses. I am interested in exploring the effectiveness of student charters of rigths and responsiblities, and how such charters seek to protect student freedoms.
