As I mentioned in my post on higher-ed funding, the VP of UBC is touting the ‘disruptive’ force of technology as a reason universities need to step up their game. Contract North has published a piece that isn’t exactly in response, but gets at the main points: universities are a monopoly and they’re not going anywhere (at least in Canada; in the US, it’s another story).

Meanwhile, in the budgetary section, I forgot Nipissing’s* layoff of 20-odd contract faculty and a dozen staff workers to balance its budget. And Dalhouse has published an admirably readable account of where its budget goes, with the caveat of course that Nova Scotia is not Ontario.
