Your Thoughts on The Summit on Higher Education
The Government of Quebec will hold a summit on higher education in February. In advance of this summit there will be four thematic meetings on the summit’s key themes: quality in higher education, accessibility and participation in higher education, governance and financing of universities, and the contribution of institutions and research to Quebec society.
The first of these thematic meetings, on quality in higher education, will take place this evening (Thursday, November 29th) and tomorrow (Friday, November 30th) at Université Laval in Quebec City. Principal Heather Munroe-Blum has been invited to participate at this meeting.
You can watch the webcast online at this link from 6:30-9:00 pm on Thursday and 8:00am-12:00pm on Friday. The Government has also created a Facebook page for the Summit where you can post your opinions. For more on the higher education summit and associated thematic meetings, see the Government’s website.
The Post-Graduate Students’ Society (PGSS) is also organizing a McGill Education Summit on December 3rd and 4th, and we would encourage you to attend as much of it as you can.
We’d like to hear from you as to your thoughts on the Government’s Summit and its themes, and how they affect McGill.
