Graduate Enrollments in Relation to Requirements for Academic Staff in Ontario Universities.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
This document is a working paper designed to point up some policies for the training of staff for the graduate schools in the universities in Ontario. Over the past few years, graduate enrollment has increased greatly, primarily a result of increased government funds for the expansion of graduate education. Recently, however, a scare has been in effect, that has caused many persons to decide that too many persons are being educated at the graduate level for the manpower demands. At this point, the Ontario government cut back on funds, hoping to curtail the problem of over-education. Presented here are: problems in forecasting requirements for academic staff and using analytic models for supply/demand comparisons; an illustration of the use of a model for analyzing Ph.D. enrollment alternatives; and principles and suggested policies for graduate enrollment and financial support.
