Dr. Greg Keefe, interim President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Prince Edward Island, issued the following statement regarding the tabling of legislation on June 20, 2023, that would bring Island post-secondary institutions under PEI’s Ombudsperson Act. The proposed legislation would allow the Ombudsperson to review decisions, recommendations, or acts relating to public post-secondary institutions on PEI, which include UPEI, Holland College, and College de l’Île.

“The University of Prince Edward Island believes the proposed changes to the Ombudsperson Act are positive ones,” said Dr. Keefe. “We would welcome the opportunity to work with OmbudsPEI to provide an external mechanism for review of practices and decisions, subsequent to internal processes. We are committed to continuous improvement of our University.”
