The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and First Nations University of Canada faculty, student and Aboriginal leaders want the federal government to reverse its decision to end funding at the end of March for the only Aboriginal university in Canada. It's not too late - sign this open letter to Prime Minister Harper to show your support for a sustainable future for FNUC.
"Both the federal and provincial governments suspended FNUC's funding earlier this year.In recent years, there have been numerous dismissals and departures of top administrators, allegations of misuse of funds, repeated deficits and declining enrolment. Ottawa and the province [Sask.] both said they cut funding because FNUC wasn't fixing the problems fast enough."
