AlgomaU Brampton students hold protest over failing grades


Students at Algoma University’s Brampton campus are protesting what they are calling unfair failing grades and are demanding changes to the grading process. According to InSauga, the protesters claim that more than 100 students–many of whom are reportedly international learners–have been “failed intentionally” by an information technology professor. AlgomaU told BlogTO that it has reached out to “each student who is protesting grades assigned by one specific instructor” and is investigating the matter urgently. “We recognize the incredible stress these students are experiencing,” read a statement from AlgomaU. “Academic integrity and fairness are incredibly important to us and the university’s Faculty of Science is stepping in to ensure each student is assessed fairly.”
