In a complex and ever-changing world, Ontario’s universities are asking for you to partner with us in building a brighter future for our families, our businesses and our communities. Share your thoughts and feelings about Ontario’s future in our survey, get involved through social media, take part in university roundtables, and stay up-to-date on the progress of the campaign.
Ontario’s Universities want to hear your ideas on how we can partner to build a brighter future.
The best thing universities can do is to focus on the successful experience so that students are able to participate culturally, socially and economically, not just in university life, but in post-university life.
We are moving away from a fairly siloed world… to a world where really the solutions have to be much more interconnected, where they have to be much more complex and they stretch across multiple disciplines.
There needs to be some form of adaptability of employers to look at a diverse skill set and how students are able to apply that, because jobs are changing every day.
Technology is so rapid in its change that we cannot actually keep up with building the skills you need… We are not going to build the skills for what you need tomorrow, because by the time we get there, it will be something else.
Ultimately having the best talent here in Ontario… is what will allow us to be successful in the future given that we don't know what the future holds. The future that we will see in five years is unimaginable right now in a lot of different ways.
We asked parents and students to share their thoughts and feelings about the future of the province in an anonymous survey. The public can continue to provide feedback through the online survey until August 2017.TAKE THE SURVEY
