URegina faculty, students call for emergency funding


Hundreds of staff, faculty, and students from the University of Regina have signed a petition calling on the university to take urgent action to address its ongoing budget crisis. “We, as members of the University of Regina community, are concerned with the direction of our institution,” reads the petition. Among other requests, the petition calls upon URegina leadership to advocate for emergency government funding and develop a sustainable plan to lower tuition. URegina spokesperson Paul Dederick issued a statement in response to CTV News, communicating that the university is in “constant communication with the provincial government.” URegina leadership reportedly plans to meet with the organizers of the petition in due course.
