Former UMontréal recteur reflects on declining enrolment rates in men


Many men are foregoing a university education and potentially jeopardizing their future career opportunities, writes former Université de Montréal recteur Robert Lacroix. Drawing on a book that he recently co-authored, Lacroix examines the declining enrolment rates of men in Québec’s universities alongside the increasing enrolments rates of women. The authors investigate the rationales and potential outcomes of men’s dropout rates, arguing that it could set men up for poorly paid jobs and fewer career advancement opportunities in the future. To effectively mitigate this issue, the authors recommend introducing intervention programs in earl childhood.
