Laurentian University today welcomed the results of an independent review of its operations and governance.
“Laurentian University is committed to making the necessary changes to ensure we have the processes, functions, equipment, training and personnel to support a financially sustainable operation. Some of the changes will advance immediately, while others, including an update of the university’s IT and other systems,will require new funding. While we have much hard work ahead, I believe this transformation will reclaim Laurentian’s role as a bilingual, tricultural brain gain for the North for generations to come.”
– Dr. Robert Haché, President and Vice Chancellor of Laurentian University
“This Board of Governors will take the necessary steps to carry out the work required for a higher degree of review, accountability and oversight by the Board, continuous renewal and training, and a deeper and more diverse skill set of its members. We look forward to working with management, the Senate as our academic governance partner, our labour partners LUSU and LUFA, and our broader community to ensure that we follow best practices in our governance structures and processes to better serve our students and community”
– Jeff Bangs, (Acting) Chair, Board of Governors, Laurentian University
Conducted by Nous Group, under the direction of Laurentian’s court-appointed Chief Redevelopment Officer and the court-appointed Monitor, the Operations and Governance Review includes a transformational roadmap and detailed recommendations that will pave the way for a stronger, financially viable Laurentian that students and all stakeholders deserve.
