Academics Take To the Hill

More than 60 academic staff from faculty associations across Canada will gather on Parliament Hill Nov. 25 to meet with their Members of Parliament as part of CAUT's annual National Lobby Day.

The faculty and librarians will describe to MPs what federal underfunding has meant at their universities and colleges, and will urge the parliamentarians to adopt a Canada Post-Secondary Education Act — an act that will restore adequate federal funding, establish guidelines to protect public post-secondary education, academic freedom, accessibility and ensure accountability on the part of both the federal and provincial governments for the expenditure of federal post-secondary funds.
