Budget cut not expected to affect construction, growth at Laurier Brantford

January 12, 2009

A $31-million operating budget cut at Wilfrid Laurier University may mean a hiring freeze, less frequent offering of courses, and larger class sizes at the university's Brantford campus. Despite the cooling economy, Laurier Brantford will continue to add new students and develop new courses. Capital projects at the campus will go ahead as planned, including a university centre that was put on hold in December. Brantford Expositor
