CREPUQ hopes the Education Summit questions more than tuition fees
Quebec's long-awaited summit on higher education kicks off today. Pierre Duschesne, the province's minister of higher education, has assembled a group of elected officials, university directors and student groups to try and find some common ground on themes of quality, accessibility and funding of the province's universities.
Many feel the future of these institutions hinges on this debate. We've been speaking to different participants in those meetings.
On the line with us this morning, we have Michael Goldbloom. He's the prinicipal at Bishop's University in Lennoxville and vice-chair of the CREPUQ, made up of Quebec universities' rectors and prinicipals.
