RRC president's conduct under review

WINNIPEG — Will the Red River College board of governors offer Stephanie Forsyth a second term as president?

With a provincial review of the college’s finances pending, and yet another senior administrator just gone out the door, the board of governors will only offer a prepared statement that it is still reviewing Forsyth’s performance — after appointing a performance review committee in May.

Forsyth was hired in the summer of 2010 but officially started in September. Postsecondary institutions generally decide whether to offer presidents a second term at the four-year mark of five-year contracts.

In a statement from board acting chair Kathy Knight, RRC said, “Every RRC president is hired under a five-year contract and each year the board of governors undertakes a performance review.

“In the fourth and final year of the contract the board of governors conducts a more in-depth review ... this review is currently under way as president Forsyth is serving in her fourth year of the contract.

“The details of this, along with any discussion regarding contract extension are considered a private HR (human resources) matter,” said Knight.

It is not known if Forsyth wants to stay beyond September of 2015.

A college spokesman said it would not be accurate to report that Forsyth is choosing not to respond to The Free Press — she is aware of numerous interview requests, said the college official, but at this time it is only appropriate for the board of governors to speak publicly.

Forsyth arrived in the fall of 2010 from a college in northern British Columbia. Forsyth was intent on exploring her aboriginal roots and in making indigenous education and the environment priorities of RRC’s growth.

Last year, Forsyth came under fire over her expenses, including $205 golf shoes, a $134 bag she bought at the Vancouver airport, car washes, insurance, winter tires, and a GPS device. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation made public her expenses that it had obtained through freedom of information legislation.

The latest high-profile departure at RRC is Keith Muller, the highly-visible dean of the culinary arts and hospitality program at the new Paterson GlobalFoods Institute.
