New Brunswick promises a decision that will benefit students

October 25, 2007

New Brunswick's provincial government will not commit to a decision date regarding the recommended merger of several university campuses with community colleges.  A working group of university presidents and college principals has been put into place to advise the government's decision.  The public has been told not to expect a decision in the upcoming session of provincial legislature, and the next session will not convene until November 27.  Minister Doherty has stated that whatever decision is reached will be based on the goal of a student focused PSE system in the province.
