Former BMO chief economist Tim O’Neill made national headlines this fall with the release of his controversial recommendations for restructuring Nova Scotia’s university system. Commissioned by the Nova Scotia government, the report was greeted with “cautious warmth by university administrators,” said the Globe and Mail, and “seeks to gut Nova Scotia universities,” said Maclean’s OnCampus. And that was just the beginning, as the postsecondary sector across Canada struggles with its own sustainability issues.
The Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario invites you to hear first-hand what all the controversy is about. Join us at 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 6 at the Art Gallery of Ontario’s Jackman Hall when Tim O’Neill speaks candidly about his Report on Nova Scotia’s University System. HEQCO’s president and CEO Harvey Weingarten will moderate the session and invite questions from the audience.
