Transforming Ontario Universities

Published: October 3, 2012

This paper presents new projects and directions for change proposed by Ontario universities in response to a discussion paper released by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, which had called for accelerated change to improve the Ontario postsecondary sector. The report presents principles that should guide university sector transformation: protecting and enhancing the high quality of the educational experience; maintaining the competitiveness of student skills and credentials; flexibility for universities to use resources most effectively; respect for the collegial governance structures of universities and, in particular, the role of senates in guiding the academic mission of universities. It also looks at how universities can leverage existing innovations and best practices in areas of common cause with Ontario colleges and other stakeholders.
