Colleges Ontario expresses concern over Drummond report's recommendation on college degrees

February 17, 2012

Colleges Ontario welcomes the Drummond report's recommendations with respect to student mobility, but is concerned with the recommendation that colleges should not be granted any new degree programs. The organization believes the provincial government needs to conduct a thorough assessment of higher education before it takes any action. "Students need a range of opportunities to get the higher education they need for their particular career goals and, in a lot of cases, what you really need is one of the degree programs at the colleges," says a Colleges Ontario spokesman.
