University of Richmond and Scholars at Risk (SAR), an international network of universities and colleges committed to academic freedom, will host a workshop on campus March 22, 2 p.m. at Jepson Hall, Room 118 to educate the Virginia region about attacks on scholars across the world.

“Scholars at Risk: Universities Partnering to Defend Academic Freedom” will feature presentations by a threatened scholar of history and women’s studies from Columbia as well as SAR Executive Director Rob Quinn and Uliana Gabara, dean and Carole M. Weinstein Chair of International Education.

SAR is a network of over 270 higher education institutions in 34 countries. University of Richmond has been an active member of the SAR network since 2005. In joining Scholars at Risk, universities and colleges, academic leadership and staff express solidarity with scholars and universities in situations where academic freedom is restricted and research, publication, teaching and learning are repressed.
