Fleming president “perplexed” by city council motion, Stouffville campus to not go forward

In a recent interview with Global News, Fleming College President Maureen Adamson said she was “perplexed” by a recent motion by the Peterborough city council. Adamson said that city council had not consulted with the college before its motion, adding that all three levels of government had already extended support to Fleming after the international student cap announcement. She noted that the college decided to cut programs that were either largely undersubscribed or had a high delivery cost that had been subsidized by the international revenue stream. York Region reports that Fleming has also cancelled its plans to open a Stouffville campus; Adamson said that the college was unable to proceed due to the student cap and changes to public private partnerships.
