Higher Education and University Research: Empowering Canadians and Their Communities. A Brief Submitted to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.
Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, Ottawa (Ontario).
This brief describes the challenges facing higher education and university research in Canada. In recent years, the Canadian federal government has demonstrated that it understands the value of university research to Canada's competitiveness with new initiatives and ambitious goals for Canada's research performance. The realization of research targets will require building on recent federal initiatives. The far-sighted investments that the federal government has undertaken since 1997 have begun a major process of revitalization of Canada's university research effort. It is essential that the educational mission of Canadian universities be revitalized. The paramount issue is to ensure that universities have the institutional capacity to provide quality higher education to a growing number of students. (SLD)
