Muntaka Ahmed, UTSU President, was interviewed by CityNews alongside U of T faculty about widespread concerns over the U of T administration’s Covid-19 reopening plans. U of T staff, faculty and students (including the UTSU) have formed a coalition raising oppositions to plans for in person learning this fall.
Ahmed raised important concerns about the mass uncertainty these plans have caused among students.
“U of T should have consulted student societies, including students who are dispersed across the world, to determine the most beneficial way to proceed with in-person and online classes this fall,” Ahmed said.
Amhed also referenced the advocacy conversations the UTSU is having with administration on behalf of our members around accommodating students needs and keeping students properly informed.
