University of Saskatchewan board fires president Ilene Busch-Vishniac


Ilene Busch-Vishniac

the University of Saskatchewan.
The board of governors said Busch-Vishniac will continue in a teaching capacity at the university.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall used his Twitter account to congratulate Gordon Barnhart, who had been appointed interim president. Barnhart, a long-time academic, is the former lieutenant-governor of Saskatchewan.

The move to let Busch-Vishniac go comes after a flurry of criticism surrounding a decision to dismiss and end the tenure of a professor who openly criticized the university's leadership. That professor, Robert Buckingham, was returned to his teaching duties after Busch-Vishniac conceded the move was a "blunder".
