NSCAD U board expresses disappointment with misinformation as group calls for changes

August 18, 2020
NSCAD University students and faculty recently rallied outside the university to call for the Board of Governors to step down and for the reinstatement of former president Aoife Mac Namara. Among other demands, the Friends of NSCAD group are asking for provincial intervention if the Board does not step down voluntarily. "I think it has brought to students' attention that there is definitely a disconnect between the students as the largest group of stakeholders, and the board of governors," said group member Brody Weaver. The NSCAD Board of Governors has issued a statement addressing the situation, adding that reinstatement of Mac Namara “is not under consideration” and expressing that the board has “been disappointed by the amount of misinformation circulating online and, in the media, and has been disturbed by some of the personal attacks.” NSCAD | CBC (NS)
