Chris Avenir "disappointed," but won't face expulsion

March 18, 2008

Chris Avenir, the first-year engineering student at Ryerson University who has made international headlines for his role in moderating a Facebook study group, received official word last night that he will get zero for the assignment in question and a disciplinary note on his file, but will not be expelled. Ryerson quite rightly notes that the word "Facebook" created immense buzz around the case, and reiterated the University's commitment to online technologies and distance learning.
