Students, universities at impasse as summit approaches

Representatives of the Quebec government and student groups met with University rectors and professors on Friday, but their all-day meeting ended with them at odds.

Universities complained about under-funding while students called for improvements in what they called university administrative waste and mismanagement of funds.

The group met to discuss university funding ahead of a provincial summit on higher education scheduled for February 25 and 26.
