TÉLUQ to return to independence

January 16, 2012

The Quebec government announced last week its intention to give Télé-Université (TÉLUQ), a distance-education provider, its previous status of college and therefore its full autonomy within the Université du Québec network. In the meantime, current students will receive a diploma from the Université du Québec à Montréal, with which TÉLUQ merged in 2005, even after the return of TÉLUQ's autonomy. Students admitted later will receive a diploma from uQuébec's board of governors, as is the case with other institutions in the uQuébec network. Coinciding with TÉLUQ's 40th anniversary, the return to autonomy will allow the institution to address more effectively its mission of teaching, research, and service to society.
