TORONTO, March 9, 2015 /CNW/ - The two central students' unions at Ryerson unveil research exposing how the University has been withholding millions that could fund a tuition freeze fees for all students.
Earlier this school year, the two students' unions, who are members of the Canadian Federation of Students, launched a campaign called Freeze the Fees to raise awareness about the sticker cost of attending university and the downloading of public service user fees on to students.
The Ryerson Students' Union (RSU), representing full-time undergraduate and all graduate students, and the Continuing Education Students' Association at Ryerson (CESAR), representing part-time, continuing education and distance/on-line students, will release more details of the independent research on Tuesday, March 10, 2015:
A public Town Hall will also take place on Thursday, March 12 from 6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m. at the Student Campus Centre, 55 Gould Street.
The Ryerson Students' Union and the Continuing Education Students' Association of Ryerson together represent over 46,000 full time, part-time undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education Ryerson students. The students' unions believe that education is a right and should be public and accessible to all.
