|PDF - Accepted Version|
This study is an exploratory report into the educational structure of Quebec. The emphasis is placed on the impact neo-liberalism and its counterpart corporatization, have on post-secondary institutions as well as the political, economic and social constructs of Canadian identity and nationalism. Some of the issues to be addressed are: the origins of post-secondary institutions in Quebec and their subsequent evolution, the impact fiscal federalism has on funding mechanisms, the neo-liberalist culture and its vices, the corporatization of Concordia University, and the overall impact of corporatization on Quebec distinctiveness and Canadian nationality. Conclusions will be made as to the status of Quebec universities in an age of corporate control and some prescriptions will be presented to mend the existing system.
