Concordia Professors Oppose the Privatization of Universities

After reviewing the government’s funding plan and GEOGRADS response to it, members of the Concordia faculty have drafted a letter in response to the government. The letter broadens the debate over university funding beyond the issue of tuition hikes.  A major concern of the signatories is the shift in the budget away from public funding in favour of a privately funded model.  They are concerned about the impacts such a shift may have on higher education and research.  Find below the text of the letter or click below if you wish to download a copy.  (english version)  (version française)
