Alberta’s economic woes and universities’ deferred maintenance. The Edmonton Journal reports that universities in Alberta face staggering deferred maintenance costs due to the slumping provincial economy. The article states: “the University of Alberta has pegged its bill at more than $800 million and the University of Calgary is nursing a $490 million potential headache,” while Northern Alberta Institute of Technology faces a 67.7 million deferred maintenance bill. This is a cross-Canada issue, according to the Canadian Association of University Business Officers: “in 2014 the total national deferred maintenance amounted to $8.4 billion.”

Trump election an opportunity for Canadian higher ed? So says Alex Usher in his November 9 blog. Usher believes that Canada’s standing as a destination for international students will go “through the roof” when a Trump administration takes over in the U.S. As a result, according to Usher, “Canadian universities are about to get more pricing power: No more being the discount end of North American higher education. But we have to up our game significantly.” Usher also sees a halt to any Canadian brain drain for the foreseeable future.

More big donations from the wealthy; smaller gifts from mid-income givers. A report titled “Gilded Giving” by the U.S.-based Institute for Policy Studies shows that “charities are increasingly relying on larger and larger donations from smaller numbers of high-income, high-wealth donors. Meanwhile, they are receiving shrinking amounts of revenue from the vast population of donors at lower and middle-income levels.” Figures are from the U.S., but may also reflect troubling trends in Canada.

The future of social media. Buffer has released an exhaustive report on “The state of social” in 2016 and what current trends portend. Among the key findings: (1) Video is gaining in popularity. (2) Facebook is the key platform, used by 93% of marketers. (3) Primary use of social media is to enhance brand awareness. (4) Top challenge is how to drive traffic from SM. (5) Fewer job positions involve only SM (15%); now it tends to be a portion of the marketing role (others include content creation and community focus).
