Aim and Objectives of Emerging Universities. Study Paper.
Committee of Presidents of Universities of Ontario, Toronto.
This report is a response to the request that the 10 established universities in Ontario undertake to support the 4 emerging universities as full members of the university community. The major role of these 4 new universities is to provide general undergraduate programs on a level of quality comparable to that of established universities in Ontario. This emphasis creates problems for all in attracting and holding scholars who expect opportunities to supervise advanced students and conduct research, although Trent and Brock Universities will find it much easier to solve these problems in a short time because of their accessible geographic locations. Lakehead and Laurentian Universities, however, operate under the double disadvantage of distance and of location in slow growth economic regions. In order to achieve the legitimate goal of equality they must overcome regional inequalities of economic development and educational opportunity and expectation. If they are to succeed, the new universities need the active support and cooperation of other universities, and recognition from the Committee on University Affairs and the provincial government that additional help channelled to them can greatly assist in achieving regional economic and social development and genuine equality of educational opportunity.
