Funding Crisis on Campuses Across BC: Langara Faculty Launch Transit Ad Campaign

Langara Faculty are worried about their students. Our students are in debt. They are exhausted. They are stressed. They are forced to spend too much time working and as a result have too little time to study. The financial stress on students is so great that Langara College is starting a food bank on campus.

It was not always like this. When many of us faculty got our degrees, the government covered 70-80% of costs, allowing us to focus on our studies. In the last 15 years, provincial funding per student has dropped by 20% at Langara College (and similar amounts at institutions across the province). Without a change in direction, where will this trend end?
