UOttawa severs ties with student federation amidst allegations of mismanagement, malfeasance

September 27, 2018

The University of Ottawa will no longer recognize the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa as a governing body following allegations of misconduct and the misappropriation of funds, reports CBC. UOttawa VP Academic and Provost David Graham stated that the university has “lost confidence” in the student governing body in light of “additional allegations of improper governance, mismanagement, internal conflict and workplace misconduct” following a forensic audit into its finances. Graham added that, in the interim, the university will maintain essential student services usually dealt with by the SFUO. CBC | Ottawa Citizen
