Friday - SSMU Event: Universities at a Crossroads: The Crisis in Post-Secondary Education

Many universities across North America are in a financial crisis and the response to this crisis is costing students and campus workers a great deal. In Quebec, undergraduate students are facing deregulated tuition and McGill is leading the charge for this and other radical changes to the post-secondary system. 

This event will examine the current crisis and the subsequent response; the provincial and wider context; how it impacts undergraduates, graduate students and academic workers; and what we can do to counteract the regressive tactics of McGill and other universities. The McGill administration claims that the university is grossly underfunded and uses this as an excuse to support tuition fee increases, selectively fund "money-making" graduate programs, cut salaries and hours for vulnerable employee groups, oppose unionization, and so on. We want to explore what's behind this claim and f! ind strategies to oppose it effectively.

Where: SSMU Ballroom, 3480 McTavish Street, 3rd floor (Metro Peel)

When: 3:00pm Friday 22 October 2010
