Faculty Calls for St. Francis Xavier University (Nova Scotia) President's Resignation

Amid budget battles, government funding cuts and recommended layoffs for 17 employees, the faculty union at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia has turned against its president Sean Riley, reports the Chronicle Herald.

“In no healthy university environment has a president served as long as Sean Riley,” said association president Peter McInnis, according to the Chronicle Herald. “We need leadership and he’s not providing it. He’s got to go.”

Ramsay Duff, vice president of finance, reportedly countered: “[O]f course there should be a microscope on the leadership. …But cuts had to be made.”

The University had a $4.5-million deficit during the 2012-13 school year.
