The letter to the Provost, Carl Amrhein, is now speedily proceeding, with the signatories to the letter to the VP Finance & Administration, Phyllis Clark, reviewing it in Google docs. If you would like to be included in the review process, please let us know.
We are also moving ahead with our plans to gather members of the Faculty to pay a visit to the Provincial Legislature. As you all know, Premier Redford’s budget provides for only a 2% increase to the Campus Alberta Grant for the next three years. As the figure needed for sustainable funding to the University of Alberta is 4%, it is time for us to pay Premier Redford a call. We hope you will want to join us! In the meantime, please encourage family, friends, colleagues, students, and every Albertan you know to sign on to the petition “Sustain the University of Alberta & Freeze Tuition Fees” at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/854/477/873/.
