Statement from Coordinating Committee of the School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies Reply

March 23, 2015 statement:

Given the recommendations of LA&PS Faculty Council of March 23, we have conducted a review of our courses and concluded that the academic integrity of all courses is compromised. As such, we have revisited the remediation plan of March 17 and have determined that as of March 23, all undergraduate and graduate courses at both Keele and Glendon campuses are suspended until a settlement is reached and the strike is over.

STATEMENT OF REMEDIATION

The Coordinating Committee of the School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies has met and discussed remediation plans for courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. There are a series of courses within our programs in which the academic integrity cannot be maintained while the strike is ongoing. These courses are integral to program curriculum and School learning objectives.

The courses are:
a -all graduate courses

b -all Unit 1 taught courses (GWST 2512; SXST 2600)

c -all General Education courses (GWST 1500 series at both Keele and Glendon; SXST 1600 series at both Keele and Glendon)

d- the required seminars: (GWST 3555 and GWST4555; SXST 2600 and SXST 4600)

Therefore, the above courses have been suspended until a settlement has been reached between CUPE3903 and the York University administration.

For all remaining courses, it is the right and the responsibility of each faculty member to determine whether returning to the classroom is consistent with the academic integrity of their course(s). We assert the right to full protection from repercussions for faculty members who decide not to come back to the classroom if they determine, in their best judgment, that they cannot ensure or guarantee the academic integrity of their course(s).

We also assert the right to full protection to students from repercussions as per Senate policy 2.2.
