We know that our public universities are setting up the next generation of Manitobans with the skills that they need to continue to compete in the global economy. More than ever, we need to offer a vision for outstanding accessible and public post-secondary education.
However, the cuts from Brian Pallister's will only hurt our universities. Since 2016, funding for our post-secondary institutions has been cut by more than 10%, all while the demand for quality, public education has never been greater. These cuts will only starve our institutions and will make life less affordable for students and their families.
The Manitoba Organization of Faculty Associations, representing over 2,000 academic professionals across Manitoba, is calling on the province to Defend, Not Defund our universities.
