The ACUP learns from the experience of the University of Montreal

The ACUP has organized the work session "Reforming the government of universities in a moment of change. The experience of the Université du Montréal (Québec)" with the collaboration of the Social Council of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) in the historical building of the University of Barcelona. 

Dr.Louise Roy (Chancellor and Chair of the Board of the Université du Montréal, 2008-2018) presented the changes that have been made to the Université de Montréal in recent years before the rectors and presidents of the social councils of the Catalan public universities and the General Director of Planning of the Generalitat, Josep Pallarès.

The Université du Montréal started in 2016 a participatory process to change its University Charter and its internal governance model towards a more representative, equitable and inclusive governance system, which ended in 2018.
