Issues: Prioritization

There is a new link on the top menu of this site, called “Issues.” Over the next months the new page will link to a series of wider issues of potential interest to our members. Currently at UNB, the most topical issue would seem to be our administration’s embrace of the trend for rationalizing university programmes called “prioritization,” so it is with that issue we will begin. Currently there is not much posted apart from a link to an excellent short article by York U historian Craig Heron, “Robert Dickeson: Right for Ontario? An analysis of program prioritization,” which is well worth a read.

Given where we are with FT contract negotiations this may not be the most opportune time to point out another potential crisis, but the process is already underway and academic staff at UNB ignore it at our peril.
