TRU Faculty call for the immediate suspension of senior administrators under investigation

Please note - if you are a former TRU employee (faculty, staff, administrator) or current TRU staff or administrator and support this petition, then please consider initiating a parallel petition. Do not sign this one as it is for current TRU faculty.   Thompson Rivers University (TRU) faculty call for the immediate suspension of Matt Milovick, TRU VP Administration and Finance, and Larry Phillips, TRU AVP People and Culture, pending the results of the Board of Governors' (BOG) investigation into allegations of harassment and bullying. It is common practice in academia - when serious allegations are lodged against those in positions of power - to place those under investigation on immediate leave with pay. This is not only to protect the safety of the complainants, particularly those who must report to those under investigation, but also to ensure a fair and equitable process for all involved. As the President and Chair of the BOG, we implore you to take immediate action.   For more information, see:  https://www.cbc.ca/listen/live-radio/1-108-daybreak-kamloops/clip/15880446-tru-investigating-behaviours-two-senior-leaders-university https://www.cbc.ca/listen/live-radio/1-108-daybreak-kamloops/clip/15880763-reaction-continues-allegations-two-tru-administrators We the undersigned, attest that we are faculty of TRU, and that we support this call. Wendy Hulko, PhD, MSW, Associate Professor, School of Social Work and Human Service, Member of the TRUFA Equity Committee, and TRUFA Representative to the Disability Management and Rehabilitation Committee
