Western Chancellor to remain in role, rebuild trust after overseas travel

January 27, 2021
Western University Chancellor Linda Hasenfratz, who travelled during December against public health recommendations, will continue in her role as chancellor. A CBC article explains that Hasenfratz regrets the decision to travel, and Western Board of Governors Chair Rick Konrad says the situation will be used as “a teaching and learning moment in the Western community.” “I am heartbroken for letting everyone down and am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve as Western's Chancellor,” wrote Hazenfratz. “I am committed to finding ways to earn back the trust and respect of the Western community.” CBC (ON)
