Former interim uSask president open to new, similar role

November 12, 2015

Former University of Saskatchewan Interim President Gordon Barnhart says that he is open to taking on a similar role with a different institution. Barnhart was responsible for stewarding uSask through difficult times following the firing of the school’s previous president in May 2014. In a recent interview with Global News, Barnhart said he was proud of the work he did as interim president and believes that he left uSask in a much better position than the one in which he found it. Barnhart applied for the permanent position of university president at uSask last year, but the university ultimately chose current President Peter Stoicheff for the position. Global News
