11/1/2015: Faculty decline university’s offer

Following an intensive weekend of negotiations, Nipissing University's full-time Faculty chose to withdraw their services and commence a strike as of 12:01 a.m. on Monday, November 2.

All classes on Nipissing’s campus, including those taught by part-time faculty, will be suspended.

Nipissing has set up a website to answer questions and provide information for students.  For more information, please visit

 “We feel that our offer is fair, and we are disappointed that the faculty has chosen to reject it.  As a public sector employer, dependent on government grants and tuition for revenue, the university must demonstrate fiscal responsibility,” said Dr. Mike DeGagné, President and Vice-Chancellor.  “The university remains committed to reaching an agreement with our faculty that is fair and reasonable. We hope that our students will be back in class very soon.”


The Concurrent Education program at Nipissing University's Brantford Campus is offered in partnership with Laurier Brantford.  Teacher Candidates achieve an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Society, Culture & Environment from Laurier Brantford, and a Bachelor of Education from Nipissing University.  Students who entered the program prior to September, 2015 will complete the program in five years.
