The great circle of life

September 29, 2010

From the Academica Group Top-Ten today:

The Association of Nova Scotia University Teachers (ANSUT) says Tim O’Neill’s review of the province’s university system amounts to “proposals that compromise access and reduce the range of choice,” and the report is a “massive step in the wrong direction.” ANSUT says proposals for some institutions to merge or cut programs “are hardly likely to attract increased student enrolment.” Alexa McDonough, outgoing interim president of Mount Saint Vincent University, rejects the report’s claim that the institution is in serious financial trouble, despite MSVU never having operated in the red. MSVU’s administration plans to issue a public response to the report to counter what it views as misconceptions about the institution. Student leaders say they will challenge the deregulated tuition plan outlined in the report. ANSUT | CBC | Halifax Chronicle-Herald (MSVU) | Halifax Chronicle-Herald (tuition)
