Canadian universities should publish data that enable the public to evaluate institutional outcomes performance effectively.

Our universities may be failing undergraduate students all across the country. At research oriented universities, between 20 % and 30% of first year students fail to proceed to second year, and fewer than 60% graduate within 6 years. Systematic disclosure of the number and percentage of students who graduate within fixed periods of time is needed.

Better data, that can be compared, would enable the public to make better post-secondary educational decisions.
