Concerns rising at post-secondary institutions about spacing and funding

The University of Calgary Students Association says they have some real concerns about their post-secondary future.

It comes amid reports the city has seen a 200 per cent increase in qualified students being denied.

President Jared Henry said it all comes down to space and funding.

“You know regardless of whether it’s University of Calgary or Mount Royal, I don’t think that universities are being provided with adequate funding in order to take in students,” he said. “We are starting to see that manifested in both the number of students being turned away and the number of high school students to get into university in the first place.”

Public Interest Alberta initiated a campaign earlier this week urging Albertans to fight potential cuts made by the premier and the Alberta Government.
