Manitoba's Post-Secondary System since 1967: Stability, Change and Consistency
Smith, Dan
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v41 n1 p48-60 2011
This study examines the transformation of Manitoba's post-secondary education system between 1967 and 2009 using legislative change to gauge structural change. The paper establishes the beginning of the contemporary post-secondary system with the 1967 decision of the Manitoba government to abandon the "one university" system model, a move akin to a "big bang," redefining system norms and expectations, and setting direction which continues to be relevant today. The study revealed extensive structural change in Manitoba's post-secondary system after 1997, the nature of which reflected the trends associated with globalization, but also reflecting the important influence that local forces have had in shaping the province's post-secondary system.
