Letter to Minister of Advanced Education

On August 16th the Ministry of Advanced Education began a comprehensive overhaul of public board positions, replacing roughly 60 public post-secondary board members before the normal expiration of their terms. This includes three board members at Athabasca University, including the Board Chair. The Athabasca University Faculty Association views this drastic change as interference in the independence of public universities in pursuit of an austerity agenda.

The attached letter was sent to Minister Nicolaides by AUFA President Jolene Armstrong on behalf of members.
