July 21, 2016

The Dalhousie Faculty Association is challenging a decision by the administration at Dalhousie University to close the daycare centre on the school’s Agricultural Campus in Bible Hill. A faculty association release states that the group has written a letter to university president Richard Florizone stating that “the provision of daycare facilities is an important and necessary benefit for Members of the DFA Bargaining Unit.” “The daycare centre on the Faculty of Agriculture campus provides a crucial support for junior faculty members with young families, as they establish their teaching and research careers,” said DFA President Laurene Rehman. DFA
