Neither crisis mode nor complacency

Thu, 2014-11-20 10:56

In September, the Quebec government announced that McGill’s operating grant would be almost $15 million less than what it had proposed in the spring — and warned that a second wave of cuts were to come. On Nov. 12, Quebec’s universities and CEGEPs were hit with that new round of cuts, amounting to $31.6 million. McGill’s share is close to $5 million. Provost Anthony C. Masi talked to the McGill Reporter about this development, and the University’s ongoing underfunding situation.

As a result of its transparent glassed walls, the room has already earned the friendly sobriquet “EduQuarium”. Outside of those rare hours posted by the entrance, in which it is earmarked for examinations or class use, the new computer lab is open at all times for public use.
