This increasingly strengthens a corporate structure of financial priorities and leaves no voice to the faculty`s experts. After participation in university leadership has gained academic freedom and the right to speak of all issues of academic quality and concern during the last round of negotiations, participation in university leadership is the next fundamental exercise of this academic freedom. This symposium will examine issues of common governance in the context of colleges: shared governance models, results-based programs, codes of conduct, loyalty obligations, confidentiality versus transparency, among other topics. On April 11, the Ford government announced that 60% (until 2025) of Ontario`s post-secondary funding would be tied to the performance criteria they set under the SMA3 process.
