| Comment

This year’s Educated Solutions, the annual magazine published by the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance, features a thought-provoking article by OCUFA President Gyllian Phillips on the need to invest in faculty renewal at Ontario’s universities.

The article explains how Ontario’s universities are underfunded, and the dangers associated with increasing student tuition fees, even when they are being subsidized by the provincial government. It describes the faculty hiring gap, the need to prioritize tenure-stream faculty renewal, and the importance of delivering fairness for contract faculty.

Ontario’s universities are at a vital crossroads, and additional investment will be needed to maintain the high quality of education the province’s students and parents have come to expect.
