About SAR uOttawa

The University of Ottawa joined the Scholars at Risk (SAR) Network in 2014.

Scholars at Risk (SAR) is an international network of higher education institutions dedicated to protecting threatened scholars, preventing attacks on higher education communities and promoting academic freedom worldwide. The network protects scholars suffering grave threats to their lives, liberty and well-being by arranging positions of sanctuary at institutions in the network.

HRREC manages the SAR uOttawa Program. The program is supported by the Association of Professors of the University of Ottawa (APUO). Assistant Director, Viviana Fernandez, chairs the SAR Canada Section's Steering Committee and represents the University in the SAR International Advisory Committee.
