MUN student union calls for transparency

August 5, 2016

Memorial University’s student union is urging the institution to put budget cuts up for a transparent public review. The call follows the closing of MUN’s Math Learning Centre, a move the union says was a “knee-jerk decision” made without proper consultation with students and faculty. Renata Lang, director of student life at the union, said that the decision to close the centre was made by a small group of administrators, rather than going through the usual consultation process. Lang also stated that there should be more transparency around administrative salaries, spending, and travel budgets. CBC
