Exams could be cancelled at VIU

Admin says strike needs to end by April 11 to avoid extending into summer session

Final exams at Vancouver Island University could be cancelled, as a result of the ongoing faculty strike. According to a statement from VIU, if negotiations with the Faculty Association, which resumed Monday, resolve the work stoppage by April 11, classes will be extended to April 29. However, under this scenario, “the exam period will be cancelled.” If the strike is not resolved until after April 11, classes will continue into May and spring and summer courses would be postponed.
