Partnerships in education


The launch of a new PhD partnership program in educational studies will pool together the resources and expanded research culture of Western and three other Ontario universities.

"This program will provide students the opportunity to have accessibility to universities across the province and to take advantage of resources from all four programs," said Allen Pearson, Western's dean of education.

The new consortium will be able to grant Western, as well as the participating universities, Brock, Lakehead and Windsor the opportunity to pursue doctoral programs in education for the first time, he explained. Currently, Western is the only university in the partnership to have a PhD program in education studies.

The program will commence on July 1 and enroll about 10 students.

Hey you! Got a problem?


Got a problem? Might want to ask DEX, because chances are they've got an answer.

The University Students' Council sanctioned business club walked away with 16 medals at the Ontario Provincial Competition held in Toronto last weekend. The medal count included five first place finishes.

Team member and second-year administrative and commercial studies student Earl Almeida said the event is a problem solving case competition which attracted 37 teams.

Almeida said the whole team was very pleased with their performance and look forward to the International Conference being held in Louisville, Kentucky this April.
