The University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean has received $13.3M in federal and provincial funding over three years to hire more teachers and staff, increase the number of French courses and programs offered, and improve infrastructure and student services. The funding will also be used by the francophone campus to renew the development of a French Research Centre. The Edmonton Journal reports that the funding responds to concerns that the campus was being “squeezed” for funding. “With this major new funding, Campus Saint-Jean’s leadership and excellence in francophone teaching, learning, and research will continue to build and enrich our university community as well as the francophone communities in Alberta, Canada, and across the world,” said UAlberta President Bill Flanagan.
