Last May, Eric Durling (president, center in photo) and Sheila Das (vice-president internal, photo credit) attended this great event with over 500 participants in higher education — students, Cegep professors, university professors, and contract teachers — from across Quebec to discuss topics essential to higher education from accessibility, to research, to market-based views, among others. The last Estates General in Quebec was in 1995 so it is high time for a re-assessment from those directly involved in education! The idea is to formulate a campaign for higher education as the experts in the field. We would want to have this poised and ready to go for the next provincial elections (October 2018).
If you want to be a part of these discussions, please come with us to the next big congress, May 2-5, in Montreal.
