Invitation from the USFA

Hello. On behalf of the Saskatchewan Association of University Teachers (SAUT), the St Thomas More Faculty Union and the University of Saskatchewan Faculty Association, I would like to extend an invitation to you and your members to attend a pre-election forum on the issue of post-secondary education in Saskatchewan.

The Government of Saskatchewan holds tremendous sway over the state of post-secondary education in our province. Your members and ours are directly impacted by the choices of the governing party. It chooses the amount of operating funds post-secondary institutions receive, impacting tuition rates. It chooses which capital projects it will fund, impacting the state of facilities. It chooses research it will support. And, it chooses the majority of appointees to boards that govern post-secondary institutions in Saskatchewan.

What are provincial parties thinking when it comes to post-secondary education in Saskatchewan? What are their plans for the future?

Representatives from the Saskatchewan Party, the New Democratic Party of Saskatchewan, the Green Party of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Progressive Conservative Party will be in attendance. Come hear what each of these parties plan for the immediate future of post-secondary education in Saskatchewan and pose questions of your own about where we are headed and why.

The forum will take place on Tuesday, March 1 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Neatby-Timlin Theatre (241 Arts). We look forward to seeing you there.
