CAUT members oppose NS government's review process of NSCAD

December 9, 2011

In a letter to Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter, the Canadian Association of University Teachers states that at its recent council meeting, delegates were informed of "troubling developments" involving NSCAD University. A member of CAUT, NSCAD's faculty union brought forward a resolution that was unanimously supported that opposes the process by which the Nova Scotia government has initiated the review of NSCAD's future. CAUT says it is particularly concerned that the terms of the review have given the province's appointee overly broad authority, which extends to possibly threating NSCAD's existence as an independent university. CAUT calls on the province to ensure the continued existence of the institution. Read CAUT's letter
