X University and Navitas: The Erosion of Public Post-Secondary Education and Exploitation of International Students

Our recommendations for X University, RUIC and Navitas International

  1. Develop a long term plan to prioritize access to education for all learners by ending differential tuition fees for international students. This includes lobbying for fully funded post-secondary education and cancelling the Navitas Agreement.
  2. Increase investment in X-University-housed international recruitment programs.
  3. Address misleading marketing materials from Navitas.
  4. Develop a transition flowchart for students to access student services, transfer records.
  5. Include student and faculty representation on all RUIC committees. Include Navitas students in RSU or the establishment of RUIC students’ union.
  6. Negotiate an agreement for service delivery with OPSEU 596 and CUPE 3904 and prioritize pre- existing services at the university.
  7. Invest in educators and commit to the creation of good jobs, rather than increased reliance on sessional and precarious workers.
  8. Use X University Senate policies and track Disciplinary Notes on X University academic records.
