Financial task force launched at McGill

February 5, 2009

With its endowment fund having lost 20% in value, McGill University has set up a task force to focus on economic uncertainty. The primary goal of the task force is to identify potential changes designed to improve fiscal management and responsibility across the university community. This goal will be achieved by exploring options on how to spend less without reducing the quality or level of services. The task force -- comprising 21 senior administrators, students, faculty, and staff -- will hold Town Hall-like meetings to discuss cost-saving measures and revenue-generating initiatives.
