August 15, 2018

The Université du Québec à Chicoutimi has partnered with Desjardins to offer students financial advice and training. According to a UQAC release, the initiative grew out of the Accès Libre project, and will include a resource centre in the student union building that will be available to students for 20 hours a week. Rector Nicole Bouchard stated that over 17,000 students applied for financial aid in the 2017/18 academic year and that the issue of student financial precarity must be addressed. UQAC (Fr)
