UPEI Board of Governors releases complainants from NDAs, provides update on progress


The University of Prince Edward Island’s Board of Governors has issued an update on its progress since receiving the Rubin Thomlinson report. As part of its effort to make amends, the Board has permanently released complainants Dr Wendy Carroll and Erin Casey from their non-disclosure agreements, stating that the university will “not prevent them from having their voices heard.” UPEI board chair Shannon MacDonald also apologized for the impact that UPEI’s response had on their professional and personal lives. “After 11 years of silence, we feel heard,” said Carroll and Casey in a statement. “We’ve reclaimed our voices. We’re optimistic about using them to continue this conversation.”
