FNUC reaches settlement with former administrators
The First Nations University of Canada announced Friday it has settled disputes with two former members of administration.
Charles Pratt and Alan Duscharme were put on leave, and then fired in 2010 amidst upheavals at the University. The were fired on allegations of misuse of funds, and submission of inappropriate expense claims. Both men denied the allegations, and FNUC has now concluded neither of the two were in dereliction of their duties, or guilty of any financial improprieties.
"There's a very tight First Nations community across Canada," said David Sharpe with the University, "and this is something we wanted to put behind us. I think all parties are very pleased with the result."
The details of the settlements are not being released.
