For the third year in a row, Missing Pieces examines the state of higher education in each province and provides an analysis of trends, priorities and policies taking place in universities and colleges across the country. How much access do students have to faculty? How has lack of government funding contributed to corporate dollars and corporate influence in education? What is the state of academic freedom on university and college campuses? To what extent are governments committed to keeping tuition fees affordable and education accessible? This report is compulsory reading for anyone interested in the debates on higher education and how they are affecting the quality, accessibility, equity and public accountability of our educational institutions.
