Students Against the U of O Resource Optimization Plan
May 20, 2010, show: Patrick Imbeau, Michael Fancie and Sean Kelly, representatives of the Graduate Student Association at the University of Ottawa joined us in studio to denounce the University of Ottawa's proposed optimization plan.
The plan was concocted mainly by external "experts" without consulting the student body (nor professors, nor staff...) and plans to cut teaching assistant contracts and teaching positions while increasing laboratory fees. Oh yes, and all this just one month after the Board of Governors increased tuition fees by the maximum allowed by the province.
The Board of Governors is due to vote on the plan this Monday May 31, 2010 at 5:30pm in the 90 University Residence building room 140. Come out and speak your mind.
