In this episode of Comment Up Close, we chat with University of Toronto Students’ Union Vice-President University Affairs Adrian Huntelar on his piece, “Breaking down the University-Mandated Leave of Absence Policy.” He critiques the policy as providing sweeping powers to university administration with few accountability mechanisms and little student input.

Editor’s note: Since the recording of this podcast, the university has withdrawn the policy with the intention of reintroducing it at a later date.
