AUCC outlines priorities for 2011 federal budget

August 17, 2010

In its pre-budget brief, AUCC makes several recommendations in the areas of innovation, university experience, and university access. The organization recommends the federal government continue investments in university research through tri-council's core budgets and programs; continue to invest in new masters and PhD scholarships (domestic and international); invest in an international recruitment strategy that puts Canada on par with other countries; advance Canada's India strategy and higher education co-operation with other nations; and work with the university sector, Aboriginal groups, and other stakeholders to invest in programs and services that will help more Aboriginal students graduate from university.
