Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 04:17 AM

The president of Confederation College doesn't appear overly concerned over provincial funding changes.

Kathleen Lynch suggests the plan to fund colleges and universities based on student performance is not uncharted territory.

She says they have always been in a system when their funding has been tied to student outcomes, but now that it will be increased.

The province eventually will be tying 60% of post-secondary funding to student grades.

Lynch does not envision this new formula forcing the school to turn away potential students.
