Battles over human rights, curriculum issues and hiring and promotionpractices reveal to what extent efforts to integrate ideas of academicfreedom and the inclusive university have engendered strife and debateon Canadian campuses. For some, the concept of academic freedom hasbecome its own myth -- an icon to be revered, an article of faith, anessentialist doctrine with roots firmly planted in tradition. Forothers, the concept of an inclusive university -- a universityreflecting the burgeoning diversity of cultures and ideologies inCanadian society -- demands realization through the transformation ofuniversity structures and practices. The four parts of AcademicFreedom and the Inclusive University explore this conflict.
