After 15 years Laurentian University is leaving Barrie.
The Board of Governors decided today that it will stop offering Arts and Management programs in Barrie as of next May and end the Social Work programs as of May 2019.
Laurentian has 696 students in Barrie–all of whom will be able to finish their studies and graduate.
A release suggests the decision is based on disagreement with constraints imposed by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
The 23 full time faculty in Barrie will be offered positions in Sudbury.
