NS report identifies major opportunities for province’s PSE institutions

July 21, 2016

Nova Scotia’s higher education community is in a unique position to drive a “socioeconomic turnaround” in the province, writes NowNS in the Chronicle Herald. Citing the 2014 Ivany report, the article discusses how “the universities and NSCC … are major employers in their communities, they generate the lion’s share of research and development activity in the province and they increasingly function as an export sector with growing numbers of out-of-province and international students.” The article concludes by highlighting some of the Ivany report’s recommendations for NS higher ed moving forward. Chronicle Herald
