On February 12, 2013 the Ontario PC Party released a policy paper titled "Higher Learning for Better Jobs." Follow this link to read a response from the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA).
The Library is in the process of developing its Master Space Plan which will shape how the Library evolves over the next few years to meet the changing needs of our students and faculty. The architecture firm that we have contracted for this purpose will be conducting a few focus groups (we've already had several as well as some informal "Town Hall" style events in the Library and the UC).
It is very important to us that the voices of our faculty are heard as the needs of faculty and instructors are very different from those of students. The information collected through these focus groups will influence the decisions that we make.
The architecture firm will be holding a focus group on Thursday February 28 from 3:15 to 4:15 pm in Room 351 in the Library. This session will be held exclusively for faculty.
If you are interested in attending and helping the Library change to meet your needs, please contact the undersigned.
