Description: Description Show the Board of Governors and upper level administration they cannot cut programs or courses at the University of Guelph!

It is with saddened hearts we announce the recent loss of several courses at the University of Guelph.

For years, these invaluable programs have suffered from chronic underfunding, and more recently have been targeted by a ruthless program prioritization process that values the income-generating potential of programs over their social and intellectual worth. On September 17th and October 1st the Board of Undergraduate Studies voted to “delete” these courses.

These courses will be missed by many in the U of G community, including students and faculty members alike. Please join us on November 27th as we pay our respects.

There will be speeches in the UC Courtyard about the cuts, and we will also walk in a procession around campus to pay our respects to the courses lost.
