Dear OCADFA members,
I am writing to urge our members to sign a public letter in support OCADFA’s Alternative Budget and to attend Monday’s Board of Governors meeting (4:30-7:30 p.m.). To secure a zoom link to the BoG meeting on Dec 7th please email Christine Huang (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You can read our primer on the Administration’s budget here.
We will also be meeting this Friday at 11:00 a.m. to go over speaking points ahead of Monday’s meeting – please let our Executive Director Graeme Reniers (email@example.com) know if you’d like to attend that Friday meeting.
We need a budget that prioritizes community over capital. The OCAD U 2020/21 Alternative Budget speaks to the need to reinvest in OCAD U and offers concrete mechanisms to do so. It proposes viable changes to the operating budget that re-centre the student learning experience while also contributing to the long-term financial and community health of OCAD University.
