Laurentian board chair to step down due to health concerns, avoiding conflict of interest


Laurentian University’s Board of Governors chair Jeff Bangs has announced that he will step down at the end of June. Bangs said he made the decision to step down due to health concerns and to avoid a possible conflict of interest after his partner, Céleste Boyer, was named the university’s general counsel. “I think one of the things I’m most proud of is the relationships that we’ve started to rebuild with our labour partners, with our university internal community, our staff, with our broader stakeholder community in Sudbury,” said Bangs. “We’re seeing signs of hope again, which is what Laurentian needs.” Laurentian has begun the process to select a new chair.
