College admission policies in the States are now making it easier for men and more difficult for women to be admitted. This can in part be seen as a response to the hysteria around the greater number of women earning bachelor degrees. Hugo Schwyzer breaks down why men don’t need affirmative action. While he pins men’s lower attendance on a false belief that they don’t need college to succeed, the research shows that in the States men can earn as much without completing college as women can with a bachelor degree. Given the fact that the President of the University of Alberta, Indira Samarasekera has said she wants to support what she sees as the underrepresented white males in university, and the fact that Alberta has an oil economy employing a disproportionate number of men, both these things are likely true here as well.
