Grim proposed Athabasca University budget to be shown faculty today projects insolvency by 2017-2018 - DAVID J. CLIMENHAGA, Rabble

Athabasca University Interim President Peter MacKinnon will present a grim proposed three-year budget this morning to the institution's General Faculties Council that projects growing deficits and financial insolvency by the 2017-2018 fiscal year. The budget was drafted after NDP Advanced Education Minister Marlin Schmidt directed MacKinnon in March not to submit the distance university administration's first draft budget, which would have involved staff and faculty layoffs, with heavy impacts on the economy of the Town of Athabasca, 130 kilometres north of Edmonton. http://rabble.ca/blogs/bloggers/djclimenhaga/2016/07/grim-proposed-athabasca-university-budget-to-be-shown-faculty-to
