UOF rector discusses university’s programming, past

In a recent interview with Radio-Canada, Université de l’Ontario français Rector Pierre Ouellette discussed the changes he would have made to the university’s programming, if he had been rector at the university’s inception. He discusses the university’s first four baccalaureate degrees, which are in the areas of urban environments, human plurality, economy and social innovations, and digital cultures. While UOF was reportedly required to create unconventional programs to avoid competition with offerings at other institutions, Oullette said that there were no questions asked about competition when the baccalaureate in education was created. Looking to the future, Ouellette discussed the process of building a tradition of French-language university education in Toronto and the importance of international enrolment.
