Summary: ffit UNIVERSITÉ DE
-ffi'REGII\IA
To: Strategic Planning Committee
From: Peter Dorrington
May 1, 2009
I would like to express, on behalf of the lnstitut français, which is mandated to
promote university education in French across Saskatchewan, our surprise and
disappointment at the absence of any mention of a strategic direction for academic
programming in French in the strategic planning discussion paper. This omission is all
the more surprising that:
' while the academic needs of three constitutionally-recognized founding peoples
(anglophones, First Nations and the Métis) are amply and deserveO[ highlighted
in the plan, those of francophones, the fourth constitutionally-recognizeO
founding people officially represented on this campus, are not addiessed
whatsoever;
academic programming in French, although never sufficiently developed, has
been present across faculties on this campus since its creation;
while the province recognizes the importance of education in French from K to 12
and therefore funds immersion programs and francophone schools accordingly,
the U of R participates actively in the assimilation of the young francophone
