Laurentian to investigate new complaints against Persinger

January 18, 2016

Laurentian University has initiated an internal investigation to examine new complains against Michael Persinger, the psychology professor who was removed from his first-year course earlier this year. Shawn Frappier, of Laurentian’s human resources department, has been appointed to look into the complaints, according to Laurentian Chief of Staff Alex Freedman. “We wanted to make sure that we treat each of them with the respect that they deserve, which is why we’ve appointed a point-person in this case to make sure that they come in through one central portal,” said Freedman. He could not elaborate on the nature of the new complaints, due to concerns about confidentiality. CBC reported that it was unable to reach Persinger for comment. CBC
