Senate calls for Concordia board chair to resign

‘Having the senior administration of the university decapitated is extremely unstable’


 

On Friday Peter Kruyt, chair of Concordia University’s board of governors, dismissed the suggestion that he should resign amid the controversial departure of president Judith Woodsworth just prior the Christmas break. However, later in the day, Concordia’s senate voted to call for his resignation. Several senate members expressed their disappointment with the board before the motion passed unanimously. Although the university first claimed that Woodsworth left for “personal” reasons, it was later discovered that she was pushed out. She is the second president to leave mid-term since 2007. “Having the senior administration of the university decapitated is extremely unstable,” William Lynch, chair of the department of electrical and computer engineering said. “I cannot exaggerate the level of demoralization,” Brad Nelson, chair of the classics department added.
