Grad Student Demandset to Overwhelm Ontario

March 13, 2007

A report released yesterday by the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA) says that the province's universities do not have sufficient faculty supervisors to accommodate the looming double cohort's move to graduate studies.  The report points out shortfalls in both funding and planning, and warns schools not to take on more students than they can handle. Government estimates predict about 37,000 grad students in Fall 2007, a 30% increase over 2006.  680 News | OCUFA News Release | Read the Report (PDF)
