Ontario universities are about to see a serious shake-up when it comes to how they receive funding. According to the Ford government’s recent budget and the Minister involved on the file, performance standards will shift over the next five years.
Universities will, in turn, see the performance factor in their funding moving from 1.4 per cent to 60 per cent.
According to Training, Colleges and Universities Minister Merrilee Fullerton, universities and colleges will both be checked based on the following criteria:
- Student graduation rate
- Experiential learning opportunities
- Graduate earnings
- Graduate employment
- Skills and competencies
What do you think about the government’s recent announcement?
