Students at MtA disappointed after closed arbitration process

Students at Mount Allison University are expressing disappointment after a “closed arbitration process” was carried out regarding blog posts by MtA professor Rima Azar. CBC reports that Azar had been on suspension after multiple complaints were received about posts on her personal blog. The arbitration process was carried out earlier in the year, and hearings were reportedly held privately. Mount Allison Students’ Union President Rohin Minocha-McKenney expressed concerns about the lack of communication regarding the arbitration process. “It’s hard to see if students and the community are being properly advocated for when there are closed-door sessions like this,” said Minocha-McKenney. CBC says that course timetables indicate that Azar will be teaching in the Fall and Winter semesters. CBC| The New Wark Times Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
