- revised budget planning for 2013-14
- meetings with government, and
- the Board of Governors retreat (scheduled for April 16-18)
All employees and students are invited to attend.
Please register for this event.
Friday April 19, 2013

The forum will also be livestreamed
In order to better organize the thoughtful ideas we have been receiving about the change process, we have added a link to IdeaScale, a platform for sharing, voting on and discussing ideas.
We have gathered many of the relevant thoughts submitted to Colloquy and sorted them into different themes:
- Institutional Strengths
- MOU/Letter of expectation
IdeaScale is where community members can talk about solutions. Colloquy remains the place for in-depth discussion and debate.
Please take a moment to browse through the ideas on IdeaScale, add your comments, or vote for the ones you like. You can submit new ideas as well.
The third theme, Letter of Expectation, was initially open until Sunday April 7th at midnight. The theme was then temporarily closed so that ideas could be gathered and submitted to the senior administrative team before thier April 11th meeting with the Ministry of Enterprise and Advanced Education.
