Post-Secondary Education in Manitoba: Doing Things Differently.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This report examined the state of postsecondary education in Manitoba and offers recommendations for the improvement of university governance, scholarship, financial management, public accountability, accessibility, aboriginal peoples, and institutional linkage. It specifically examined the operation of the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg, Brandon University, and the College universitaire de Saint-Boniface. Among the 41 major recommendations, the report called for: (1) prioritization of program funding at universities to make better use of limited financial resources; (2) reduction and streamlining of university committees; (3) giving equal consideration to teaching, service, and research in regard to faculty promotion; (4) universities to make more clear to the public their mission, goals, and activities; (5) expansion of the role of community colleges; and (6) creation of a Cabinet Committee on Post-Secondary Education. Six appendixes outline the statutory powers of the boards of governors of the institutions, provisions of the University of Manitoba collective bargaining agreement, undergraduate and graduate tuition fees, speakers at local hearings, and the terms of reference of the report. Contains 73 references. (MDM)
