Meet the New Boss, and Other Stuffs

In case you missed it yesterday, and by now you would have missed the introductory press conference today, but Alan Wilderman, the University of Guelph's current VP Research will succeed Ross Paul as the University of Windsor's President and Vice Chancellor. Those interested can peep his vitals here and here.

Also on campus, tensions continue to simmer over the alleged police misconduct at January's Passa Passa event, with new student groups popping up every day and law profs openly criticizing both university administration and the UWSA executive, specifically William Ma, who declined to comment for the linked story.
