MONTREAL--After a year of chaos, where one president was forced from office amid revelations of mismanagement, Paul Karwatsky sat down with new Concordia University President Alan Shepard to discuss what the academic has in plan to fix the university at the centre of so much scandal.
A former provost of Ryerson University, Shepard fills a role where both of his full-time successors, Judith Woodsworth and Claude Lajeunesse, were removed by the university's Board of Governors only mid-way through their terms. After a governance review, much of the Board has been replaced.
"We had a number of recommendations, all of which were endorsed by the university and have been implemented," said Shepard.
