The Report of the Committee on the Future Role of Universities in Ontario.
Fisher, Harry K.; And Others
In a study to investigate and ensure the effective use of the Ontario university system resources, the Committee on the Future Role of Universities in Ontario: (1) reviewed the development of the university system; (2) set forth current objectives in operational terms; (3) discussed the degree to which objectives were being met; (4) outlined the relationship between objectives and funding levels; and (5) indicated the structural changes desirable or necessary at various funding levels. Chapters discuss objectives, funding levels, allocation of funds, governance, various other matters, and the alternative (a restructured system). Conclusions cover all areas examined and offer recommendations such as: access to Ontario universities should be improved; more academic programs, including professional programs, should be provided on a part-time basis; adequate funding should be available for replacement of research equipment; allocative mechanisms should be chosen in the light of policy goals and expected funding level; and the council should continue to assist in advising the Minister on program authorization. The appendix provides "The Challenge of the '80s--Preliminary Report of the Committee on the Future Role of Universities in Ontario," which examines past and future objectives, funding, the structure of the system, and conclusions.
