New University Cooperative
The New University Cooperative (NUC) is a grassroots organisation of students, academics, activists, and professors from across Canada. Our purpose is to create a institution for higher education in Canada which is affordable, accessible to the marginalized, and devoted to protecting and sustaining our earth.
Humanity is faced with a series of great challenges, including climate change, biodiversity loss, and growing social inequality. The New University Cooperative seeks to create a space where individuals can learn skills and gain knowledge to assist them in bringing about a sustainable and social just future.
Over the past few years we have held several national meetings, organized lectures and presentations, hosted two symposiums and a short course summer programme, fundraised thousands of dollars, and shared hundreds of e-mails.
The next two years are an exciting time for the New University Cooperative, with the inaugural campus set to open by 2013, as according to our five year plan. We are developing a template for an undergraduate and graduate degree program, and completing financial planning for this first campus. Would you like to help the cooperative with the planning?
