AU Budget 2016/17
Athabasca University just posted a message to students about the 2016/17 AU budget. AU’s financial difficulties are no secret with a $3.3 million dollar deficit budget, but the message from the Interim AU President, Peter MacKinnon, ends on a positive note, stating “Our challenges are serious and immediate, but I am confident that they will be met. I know AU has the full support of government, our students and our community. Together, we will see our way through this difficult time and put the university on course toward a bright future.” Read the full story online here.
The Alberta Minister of Advanced Education has also expressed that “the government is committed to Athabasca University”. You can read up on this in The Voice Magazine here!
