CBU Board of Governors Approves 2015-16 Budget

Today, the Cape Breton University Board of Governors approved a $48.9 million operating budget for the 2015-16 year.

“Under the sound leadership of Vice-President, Gordon MacInnis, a number of tough decisions were made taking full account of the financial realities of the higher education sector in Nova Scotia. CBU is committed to program quality, accessibility, affordability and diversity, and the modernization and physical safety of its facilities - all the while keeping the best interests of our students in mind,” says President David Wheeler. “The result is a multi-year plan that focuses on growth and sustainability while being fiscally responsible.”

Putting Yourself in a Student's Shoes

Monday, April 20, 2015

I recently completed a professional development course titled Supporting International Students offered by the Centre for Higher Education Research and Development (CHERD) at University of Manitoba. It included a great deal of reading about the regulations surrounding study permits and student work permits, which is interesting but not directly related to my everyday work. The best part of the course, in my opinion, was one of the assignments meant to get you thinking about university admissions processes from a student's perspective. The assignment was to imagine that you were an international student and explain how you learned about your home university and what process you used to study there. Now, I like to think I have a well-developed imagination. Indeed, some might say I have an over-active imagination! But I was stumped. I didn't have the first idea about how an international student would find information about Cape Breton University or decide to apply here, let alone what process was followed. Facing a tight deadline (the assignment was due in 5 days), I decided to do what I do best: a little ethnographic research.
