Institutions need increased public financial resources to support students: Opinion

January 10, 2022
Canadian postsecondary institutions need financial resources in order to support students, who will play a pivotal role in the post-pandemic future, writes University of Waterloo President Vivek Goel. Goel writes that Canada is falling behind the global precedent for public funding for its universities, which in turn hinders the institutions’ ability to set themselves apart with their high-quality offerings. Goel argues that the government needs to make public investment in higher education a priority in order to enable institutions to prepare students to make a meaningful impact in Canada’s future.
