uSask students to have seats on TransformUS academic task force

January 25, 2013

University of Saskatchewan Council has approved in principle the TransformUS plan, which aims to cut up to $25 million in spending across campus and now includes student voices on the task force charged with reviewing academic programs. The plan calls for 2 task forces to review all academic and administrative activities at uSask in a ranking system aimed at cutting or merging programs and services. Approximately 100 students were in attendance at the council's meeting Thursday to express their displeasure over the lack of official representation for students in the process, but the administration did amend its request for approval to include seats for students on the academic task force. uSask News Release | Saskatoon Star-Phoenix
