This came in response to fraud allegations, and allegations of financial misconduct faced by at least three individuals on the SFUO executive, and for many students, felt long overdue. For others however, concerns of administrative interference in student governance raised red flags, and some students feel as though their voices are being stifled. We’re here to tell you that this is not the case.
The administration has a lot of questions to answer in the coming months and negotiations will be intense, but this needs to be readdressed with a proper overhaul of the SFUO. With only two executives currently serving, students need to come together to make sure that the SFUO does what it can to regain the trust of students at the U of O.
The Board of Governors met on Sept. 24 to discuss the past year’s budget, this year’s budget, the future of Brooks residence, Ontario’s free speech policy, and cannabis legislation on campus. At the end, the board went in camera to discuss the SFUO.
The unveiling served as an opportunity for U of O professors in both the science and engineering faculties to speak on key topics in their fields, including green manufacturing, fluid mechanics, nanofabrication of devices, energy conservation at the nanoscale, and reducing the environmental footprint of pharmaceutical manufacturing.
Canadian astronauts, Chris Hadfield, Dave Williams, Marc Garneau, Steve MacLean, Robert Thirsk, Bjnari Tryggvason, Jeremy Hansen, Joshua Kutryk, and Jenni Sidey-Gibbons visited the U of O to chat about the future of Canada in space.
The SFUO announced that three executives will vacate office, and their intention to continue operations in light of the university's contract termination notice.
