Nova Scotia fears tuition spikes due to delayed retirements

April 13, 2007

With many highly-paid faculty approaching retirement age, university administrators in Nova Scotia have filed complaints against the proposal to end mandatory retirement.  If retirement at 65 is no longer mandatory, the schools potentially face millions per year in senior salaries -- an expense that they claim would fall on the shoulders of students via tuition increases.  Selected faculty are currently allowed to stay on at NS universities past 65, but this is at the universities' discretion.  CBC
