Francophones at colleges & universities confronting austerity measures

February 23–24, 2018 – Sheraton Ottawa Hotel

Conference Overview

CAUT’s third Francophones’ Conference is intended for Francophones and Francophiles who work in Francophone, bilingual or Anglophone post-secondary institutions. The challenges have been plentiful for these institutions—and above all, for faculty and students—since post-secondary administrators and governments began advocating for austerity measures. The conference aims to shed light on the austerity measures that many public education and research institutions are seeking in order to “trim the fat”, and it intends to determine how these measures specifically impact on Francophone teachers, researchers and students, as well as French programs and courses in French.
