Athabasca University to Lay Off 44 Employees

Athabasca University will lay off 44 staff in the next few weeks to deal with a revenue shortfall following the provincial budget. The layoffs will come from a mix of support staff, management and faculty, with names and positions to be negotiated with bargaining units and the faculty association in the next week or so. Another 35 employees - again, a mix of staffing types - have voluntarily put their names forward in the last eight weeks as part of the university's career-transition program.

Athabasca University Announces Executive and Management Changes

Athabasca University president Frits Pannekoek has announced his intention to step down. Pannekoek, 65, took over as Athabasca president in June 2005 and was scheduled to end his second term in 2015. But in recent months he began informing university staff of his plans to retire late in 2013 or early in 2014. The move means Athabasca's board of governors must begin searches to fill the university's top two executive positions, including a replacement for former vice-president academic Margaret Haughey, who was among the four who recently exited. Besides Haughey, the university also said goodbye to Brian Stewart, vice-president, IT, and chief information officer; Murray Walford, associate vice-president, finance; and Dietmar Kennepohl, associate vice-president, academic.
