March 25, 2021
The University of Manitoba has announced that its board of governors have voted to increase tuition by an average of 3.75% next school year. Winnipeg Free Press says that the tuition hike came after a provincial funding cut of $5.9M and is estimated to generate $14.9M in tuition revenue. UManitoba’s new spending plan also includes investments in student support and learning, and includes $1M in assistance to support the “highest need” students; $1.2M to bolster online teaching; $250K to develop an equity, diversity, and inclusion strategy; and $850K on libraries.
