Centre for Human Rights (CHR)

The Centre for Human Rights (CHR) contributes to York University’s vision of social justice and accessible education.  We strive to build a respectful, equitable, diverse and inclusive (REDI) community at York by advancing, promoting, and upholding human rights at York in accordance with provincial human rights legislation and the University’s policies.

The CHR:

  • Supports York University’s administration in developing and implementing policies, practices, guidelines and procedures.
  • Educates the York community on their human rights responsibilities and obligations and related human rights issues.
  • Receives and processes human rights concerns and complaints brought forward by York students, faculty and staff.
  • Researches human rights issues for use in its policy advice and educational programming.
