Higher education discussion paper released
Bob Rae, the former Ontario premier who is currently undertaking a review of post-secondary education in Ontario, released a discussion paper today during an event at the University of Guelph-Humber.

Town hall meetings have been scheduled in 14 Ontario communities, including one in Guelph Nov. 24. People throughout the province are encouraged to contribute their ideas by attending town hall meetings, commenting
Copies of the discussion paper and workbook, further details about the town hall meetings and instructions on how to participate are all available on the review’s website.
As well, president Alastair Summerlee continues to seek advice from the University community on how to maintain quality and improve accessibility at U of G and Ontario’s other universities and colleges. Summerlee is gathering information and ideas to present to Rae.
