Foreign staff influence may be aid to universities CALGARY (CP) An exam- ination of foreign influence on Alberta education probably show that foreign staff at uni- versities is an asset rather than a detriment, the chairman of the Universities Commission, Dr. L. A. Thorssen, said Thurs- day. Education Minister Rob e r t Clark announced earlier this week the government will com- mission a study into the influ- ence of foreign instructors and textbooks. Dr. Thorssen said there have "considerable number ol" complaints, particularly in east- ern Canada" about foreign in- fluence. "And because of this fact, I welcome the study as long as it is an honest and sincere study, not a witchhunt. "We probably can clear up, once and for all, a lot of skepti- cism and concern from the minds of a lot of people. About half the faculty at the University of Calgary is foreign and these instructors with "dif- ferent backgrounds of tradition, culture, education and experi- ence should make a tremen- dous contribution." Complaints that foreign pro- fessors are taking jobs from Ca- nadians "could have some val- said Dr. Thossen, but senior instructors in c e r t a in fields must be from outside the country because ''fifteen years ago some disciplines were not taught within Canada."
