The recent scandal at Wilfried Laurier University should make it clear that higher education in Canada is, literally, in crisis.

You probably know all of the top-ranked and largest Canadian universities, but what are the universities of the future? Each year, UniversityHub publishes our infamous Canadian University Rankings, and among them are the five universities we consider to be "Canada's Rising Stars."

Following Trump's executive order banning travellers from seven "Muslim-majority" countries, Canadian colleges and universities penned statements touting themselves as welcoming, inclusive and open. I for one am holding back my applause. This is an opportunistic marketing ploy to recruit international students as a source of revenue.

Over the last several decades, a wide number of studies from experts inside and outside of Canada have pointed out the gap between the current performance of our health system and the level of performance we should be able to expect.
Can you name all 98 universities in Canada? Quite honestly, we'd be impressed if you could hit more than 20. Which ones don't have the marketing budgets of the larger schools to make them internationally known? And which ones simply want to be kept under the radar?

Women are breaking through in the very place where their numbers will not only make gender parity a reality in the next 10 years, but where the breeding grounds of gender dominance are all pointing in the same direction. I mean, of course, Canada's universities.

Millennials, the generation who are always one step ahead when it comes to knowing what they want and how to get it. They are the generation who value experiences above anything else and it's likely because of how much information they have at their fingertips.

If these expenses are an example of presidents acting frugally in the face of funding shortfalls, taxpayers should be very concerned.

Is any of this relevant almost three years later? Yes, because mini-versions of the Quebec protests still play out on Canadian campuses. They may not be about tuition, and their ideological bent could be left or right. But too often when students organize around political causes they take on the same unsavory tones that reject dissent and make straw men of opposing arguments.
But all professors should be cognizant of the relevance their research holds for society beyond the journals, and the responsibility they have for sharing this research. If their work does not take the metaphorical form of Harrison Ford in a cowboy hat, sweeping through and engaging with the real world, then what's the point?
McGill University is no longer Canada’s best school, according to the 2013 QS World University Rankings. In the latest list, the University of Toronto came in at 17, while McGill ranked 21st. This ye...
TORONTO - Many university students recall the rambunctious pub nights, late-night cram sessions and laundry-strewn dorm rooms of campus life with nostalgic fondness. But this cultural rite of passage...
Several times per semester an article gets forwarded around amongst the students in my PhD program with a message that is some variation of the following: Doctoral studies are pointless. Needless to say, these are depressing, discouraging reads for those of us already pursuing advanced degrees. I enjoy being a PhD student.
It is once again university acceptance season. And for a growing number of Canadian grade 12 students, the letters and e-mails include offers of admission from U.S. colleges and universities in addition to the usual array of Canadian schools. But does it actually make any sense for a Canadian to go to a U.S. university?

Many university professors are great teachers. Many are not. I'm baffled that those who are great teachers are saddled with research. And those who are great researchers are saddled with teaching. More importantly, why do universities saddle students with these subpar teachers?
Some argue that professors must be able to do both. Yet, professors at Canadian universities are generally promoted based primarily on their research abilities -- on how many publications they get, and how much research money they bring to the university. Teaching is only superficially acknowledged as important.
Canada is finally moving toward a smart, two-step immigration policy -- like Australia and others have -- that will recruit talent through a targeting policy of foreign student education. Most foreign students in Canada get their degrees and never come back. Most Australians apply to remain and the majority stay.
Canada should double the number of international students in the next 10 years in order to stave off a looming labour shortage, a government advisory panel suggested Tuesday.One way to attract the bes...
The United States, contrary to Canada, had chosen to split its superior education system, namely the universities, into a private and a publicly-funded one, the first supposedly competing with the other. Private universities attract Nobel Prize winners, top researchers in most fields of knowledge, whether we like it or not.
