USudbury receives $1.9M to transition to French-language institution

The University of Sudbury has received $1.9M over two years from the federal government to support its transition to a standalone, French-language institution. The investment is part of a $121M minority-language investment that the federal government announced last year. At the time of the initial announcement, USudbury community members were concerned that they would not receive a share of the funding. The $1.9M will be used to fund an organizational review and will help the institution meet the student and labour market needs of the Mid-North community. “Today’s announcement confirms to the Francophone and Francophile students of Greater Sudbury and the Mid-North that a university ‘by and for’ the community has taken yet another important step: its roadmap is now concrete,” said USudbury President Serge Miville.
