(Ottawa – September 8, 2016) Knowing how to read and analyze post-secondary financial statements is the best way to understand how much money a college or university has and how that money is spent.  CAUT’s Guide to Analyzing University & College Financial Statements, written by Profs. Cameron and Janet Morrill of the University of Manitoba, is a step-by-step guide to assist academic staff associations in identifying the amounts and sources of resources available for additional support for academic teaching and research.

“This guide is an essential tool for our members and for the public,” said CAUT Executive Director David Robinson.  “As public institutions, universities and colleges need to be open, transparent, and responsive in all matters, including their finances.”
