uToronto students, faculty call for greater decision-making power

January 20, 2011

Students, faculty, and employees of the University of Toronto gathered Wednesday to express their lack of confidence in the institution's administration and governance. Members of the newly-formed U of T General Assembly (UTGA) plan to "map out an alternative direction" for uToronto -- "one that ensures access and improved learning conditions for students, safe and dignified working conditions for workers, and the protection of academic freedom for all." UTGA argues that administration puts the interests of corporations and private donors first. Other issues include the campus closure during the G20 summit, flat tuition fees for arts and science students, and tutorial sizes. UTGA News Release | ParentCentral.ca | UTGA Project
