Alberta asserts to colleges, "we own you"

November 27, 2007

The government of Alberta has announced that it will dictate ground rules for expansion at its colleges and universities. A new report, to be released later this week, will recommend restricting research to current universities, and clear classification of all PSE institutions into one of six categories. UofC and UofA are supportive of the recommendations, but Grant MacEwan and Mount Royal College would be prevented from offering graduate programs.
