Message from the President re: Laurentian's insolvency

Dear University of Sudbury community,

On February 1, 2021, we were all shocked to learn of Laurentian University’s unprecedented step in filing for creditor protection.

We understand there are questions. To be clear, the University of Sudbury is a separate legal entity that manages its own financial and human resources, and we have not filed for creditor protection.

To our students: rest assured that we remain dedicated to you. Also note that operations, activities and courses are continuing as planned and this term is not affected, as Laurentian University also communicated.

We will continue to closely follow this developing Laurentian University situation to understand potential impacts; seek the advice of our legal counsel; and appeal to the support of our stakeholders and community partners. We remain committed to listening to our students, faculty, staff, colleagues, and communities, and to communicating updates when we have more details.

You can also consult the Monitor’s website for regular updates over the next three months.

Take care, and know that we always appreciate all our ambassadors, friends and communities!

Yours sincerely,
Fr. John Meehan, SJ
President and Vice Chancellor
