Two former senior officials with the First Nations University of Canada have settled their differences with the university.
The employment contracts of former president Charles Pratt and Vice-President of Administration Allan Ducharme were terminated in March 2010. FNU says the two parties have now successfully resolved claims originating from that action.
Terms of the settlement were not disclosed although the university makes it clear in a news release neither Pratt nor Ducharme were found to be in “dereliction” of their respective duties nor guilty of any financial impropriety.”
The termination of the two men came as the university struggled with financial and other pressures. All the while the institution was negotiating a management partnership agreement with the University of Regina.
