July 28, 2021
The Government of Alberta has delayed the University of Calgary’s proposed tuition hike because of insufficient student consultation. AB Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides asked UCalgary to conduct consultation with students and resubmit its proposal for the tuition increase by October 29th. University of Calgary Students’ Union is praising the move, saying that the student consultation that had been conducted was insufficient. “[W]e firmly believe going forward that there must be a minimum standard set for the university to adhere to when it comes to consultation and student feedback,” said union president Nicole Schmidt.
