Western apologizes to faculty association over handling of Brescia merger    


Western University has issued an apology to the University of Western Ontario Faculty Association (UWOFA) after hearing concerns about the proposed merger with Brescia University College. After it was announced in September that Brescia would fully integrate into Western by Spring 2024, the UWOFA applied for a judicial review of Western’s decision. In a recent joint statement from Western and UWOFA, the two declare that they have reached a resolution. Western states that while it was motivated by “good intentions,” it should have “consulted earlier with UWOFA” and that its approach “did not reflect our shared values.” The parties have subsequently paved a “path for integration of Brescia faculty, librarians, students and programs into Western.”
