This blog reflects my impressions from the Carleton University Board of Governors meetings. These notes are exclusively from the OPEN SESSIONS of board meetings and are simply meant as my synopsis and analysis of matters that are already public. My focus is and will be on due process, but I will also discuss substantive matters, especially as related to my constituency (faculty members and librarians kindly elected me to a three-year term on the board).

My motivation for starting this blog are that (1) the highlights of a two-hour meeting should only take two-minutes for you to read and (2) the board meetings are held in a place that only has room for the board members, members of the university’s senior administration, and seats for at most six visitors. I want to start a dialogue about these important open meetings of the Carleton University Board of Governors and therefore encourage your comments and feedback.

    I became aware of your blog after receiving messages from Carleton University administration in response to the articles in Ottawa Citizen and Sun. Refreshing blog. Keep up the good work.
