University Education in Ontario: Shared Goals & Building Blocks.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
This brochure suggests five goals that are likely to be shared by the people of Ontario, their government, and the province's publicly funded universities for a strong university system, and identifies the building blocks and resource-related commitments that would enable Ontario universities to achieve these goals. The goals are: (1) all appropriately qualified Ontario students will have access to a place in an Ontario university; (2) no student will be denied access to the program of his or her choice for financial reasons; (3) the education received by Ontario university students will be the best in Canada and on par with that offered in the best public universities worldwide; (4) research support will enable Ontario's faculty and students to add valuable knowledge and produce economic and societal benefits to all Ontario residents such that the province secures a reputation for excellence in both its scientific/medical and its humanities/social sciences research; and (5) the physical environment of Ontario universities will be safe, up-to-date, accessible to those with special needs, and will enhance the learning effectiveness of each student's educational experience.
