Trent University's Submission to the Rae Review

Former Ontario Premier, the Honourable Bob Rae hosted two highly successful meetings on November 22 in Peterborough as part of the Postsecondary Review process taking place across Ontario. Trent University was the location for a round table discussion where delegates from various local and regional institutions provided input. A Town Hall meeting held in the evening at Fleming College drew more than 100 participants.

Mr. Rae addressed each question and, at times, engaged in longer discussion on points of interest. Topics at the Town Hall meeting ranged from student financial assistance and preparing students for post secondary-style learning to university-college collaboration.

Trent University prepared an official submission for to the Postsecondary Review. A PDF of the submission can be viewed here.

Mr. Rae will host a total of 17 public town hall meetings at which Ontarians are encouraged to share their ideas and comment on his discussion paper Higher Expectations for Higher Education (http://www.raereview.on.ca/en/involved/workbook.asp?loc1=involved&loc2=workbook). Also on the Rae Review Web site, is an opportunity to read about discussions from previous Town Hall meetings in other Ontario cities (http://www.raereview.on.ca/en/feedback/townhalls.asp?loc1=feedback&loc2=townhalls).
