uSask TransformUS non-confidence motion defeated at University Council

March 3, 2014

A motion of non-confidence in the University of Saskatchewan’s TransformUS plan was defeated last week by a vote of 42-18, following an extensive debate on the initiative at University Council. The motion was brought to the council after an open letter calling for more consultation on the plan was signed by some 200 students and faculty. “The budget decisions that we are looking at for the university are serious ones…and I think people recognized these are important decisions,” says uSask VP Academic Brett Fairbairn. Fairbairn explains that the TransformUS recommendations will go into an implementation plan to be presented "on or about May 1." CBC | Star Phoenix | TransformUS Updates
