Feb 3rd, 2017 | Posted In : News and Initiatives
Premier Kathleen Wynne visited the U of T Mississauga campus on January 31, meeting with students and talking about removing financial barriers to higher education.
“I’m touring campuses because it’s important to me to hear about the challenges that you’re facing,” said Wynne. “I’m in provincial politics because I think education is the most important thing that we do…you [students] are also important to the current and future economy.”
Wynne was welcomed to campus by UTM Interim Vice-President and Principal Ulrich Krull; Nour Alideeb, president of the UTM Students’ Union; and Alex Paquette, co-president of the UTM Association of Graduate Students. She began her visit in the Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre, stopping to chat with students in the RBC Learning Commons.
