Want to learn more about the PPP and why we oppose it?

What is the PPP? In October 2013 the University of Guelph released the PPP or Program Prioritization Process report that ranks academic, services and administration with the aim to develop justification for $32.4 million in cuts. We believe that the process and its results are deeply flawed and create an excuse for the University to justify further cuts to the Arts and other “less popular” programs as a well as greater private funding for research and facilities.
