uSask President reflects on the past year

May 22, 2015

One year after the President of the University of Saskatchewan was fired and the Provost resigned in the wake of a controversy around academic freedom, interim President Gordon Barnhart says things on campus are calm. "We've assessed: was our reputation hurt? And I think for the first little while it was," Barnhart said. He went on to note that people seem to have moved on and that donors and alumni have been largely supportive of the university in the last year. Donations to uSask were higher in 2014 than the previous year, indicating to Barnhart that uSask’s reputation is rebounding from the “bump in the road.” StarPhoenix
