In reply to Dr. O’Reilly Runte’s message to the Department of Neuroscience

In response to the  “Update – Neuroscience”, message to the Carleton Community from President Roseann O’Reilly Runte,

Dr Runte,

Stakeholder engagement and transparency are an absolute necessity when making major decisions that impact our Carleton community. When all planning is cloaked in secrecy, inevitably the outcome cannot be positive. Unfortunately, the mishandling of this project has left faculty, graduate students and staff with unprecedented levels of stress. Asking for patience under these circumstances is not a fair ask. Collaboration was required months ago.
