Profs Call for Moratorium on Private Universities in BC

November 30, 2006

The Federation of Post-Secondary Educators called yesterday for a moratorium on degree-granting status for private universities, after last week's decision to give degree-granting status to Quest University in Squamish BC. "Over the past couple of months British Columbians have seen how ineffective the government's regulation of private post-secondary institutions has become and how that has backfired, mostly to the detriment of students." (Kingston College has been at the centre of controversy in BC in recent months.) FPSE media release
