York University President Asks Ombuds to Review Student Elections

In the face of complains about the recent York Federation of Students elections, President and Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri has asked the University Ombudsperson to conduct a review.

Professor and Ombuds, John D. McCamus will review the experience with the 2010 YFS elections and report on whether there are changes in the election procedures, processes or practices that should be implemented in future elections in order to ensure transparency, fairness, and the avoidance of conflicts. McCamus was appointed to the position less than a year ago after the university split the duties of campus Ombuds and director of the Centre for Human Rights.
