Who or What does Higher Education Serve?

Friday, September 25, 2015

Cape Breton University

The Royal Society of Canada Atlantic and Cape Breton University invite you to join us on beautiful Unama’ki/Cape Breton Island for an afternoon of dialogue and debate around the question of Who or What Does Higher Education Serve?

The event will cover a range of topics from the Antigonish movement and its continued resonance for today, to transforming institutions of higher education to better serve Canada’s First Peoples, to challenging the students-as-consumers model, to discussing strategies for restructuring the higher education sector in the Province.

This event is one of four provincial symposia being held in Atlantic Canada in Fall 2015 as part of the RSC Atlantic.
