Keyano leadership “not budging” in response to student protests over failing grades, academic misconduct

Keyano College’s leadership and student association have issued their response to recent student protests on campus. Fort McMurray Today explains that around 50 international students—most of whom are studying early learning and childcare—protested failed grades and charges of academic misconduct. Keyano President Jay Notay said that the college is “not in a position to give them what they’re asking for because it’s compromising our academic integrity” and would not change grades because of the protests. Keyano’s students’ association president Sheresee Miller issued a statement supporting Notay’s stance: “Students will have to face the consequences if these actions are actually taking place: cheating, plagiarism and misrepresentation are all things we are not in agreement with.”
