OCUFA Board of Directors meets with MTCU Minister Glen Murray

| Comment

At the February meeting of the OCUFA Board of Directors, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities Glen Murray spoke and took questions from faculty associations representatives from across Ontario. The Minister again outlined his interest in accelerated three-year undergraduate degrees, all-year instruction at universities, and increased reliance on online education.
 
As was made clear at the meeting, OCUFA has significant concerns with these proposals, as they may impose financial constraints on students, diminish the portability of Ontario credentials, and further erode the essential connection between scholars and learners in the classroom. We will continue to work with Minister Murray and the Government of Ontario to highlight these concerns and preserve the quality of university education in Ontario during this period of short-term fiscal restraint.
