The Algoma University Faculty Association is fighting back against the privatization of their university. Faculty at Algoma U (AU) have been designing and delivering courses in a graduate certificate in Project Management since 2021.
This fall, AU management has transferred course design and delivery responsibilities for this certificate to Yorkville University, a private, for-profit university with non-unionized faculty who will be paid much less to deliver the courses than AU faculty.
The AU has a petition calling on Senate to put a stop to this arrangement with Yorkville. Please sign and share the petition in your networks.
