Vianne Timmons removed as MUN president

Vianne Timmons has been removed as the president and vice-chancellor of Memorial University.

Glenn Barnes, Chair of the Board of Regents said the appointment is being ended on a without cause basis.

Dr. Neil Bose has been appointed president and vice-chancellor pro tempore for a two-year term or until a new president is recruited.

In a statement, the board said it "appreciates Dr. Timmons’ contributions to the university during her time with Memorial, particularly her efforts to advance the university’s strategic priorities. We extend our best wishes in all her future endeavors."

The search for a replacement will begin in due course.

Timmons had been on a six-week paid leave of absence after questions were raised about her indigenous heritage.
