Maclean’s Magazine is seeking the opinion of faculty on a variety of issues, including corporatization and equity concerns in the academy. OCUFA understands that this is the first time faculty opinions are being sought on these topics. While OCUFA provided some feedback on the expanded survey, it remains a Maclean’s project. OCUFA does not endorse the survey.
The message from Maclean’s follows:
Maclean’s is requesting your participation in our new and expanded national survey of universities and colleges.
The survey looks at topical issues: corporate influence in research, pressure to sign non-disclosure agreements, and sexism in academia. These are issues facing many academics, but for which there is very little data.
This survey also seeks your opinion on quality and innovation at Canadian universities, as well as which universities and colleges are doing the best research and offering the best programs in your field of study. Your answers will shape Maclean’s 25th annual university rankings and their first ever ranking of university and college programs.

All answers are entirely confidential. The survey shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to complete. To thank you for you for your time, after you complete the survey you can enter into a draw to win an Apple iPad mini 3.
If you run into any issues completing the survey please don’t hesitate to contact Zane Schwartz from Maclean’s at firstname.lastname@example.org
