Comments of all kinds are welcome. Here are some questions on which we would particularly like to hear:
- Did you graduate from a Nova Scotia university or the NSCC?

- Do you have experience of university research making a useful contribution to your work or community?
- Do you feel that universities deliver value for money?
- Do you live in a university community? If so do you feel that it adds to the community’s vitality and culture?
