Lancaster University Students’ Union President and Chair of the Trustee Board, George Nuttall was dismissed from office today following an independent investigation into complaints received by the Union.
When the Students’ Union received the complaints, it began an investigation into the matter. The findings of the investigation were presented to Mr Nuttall.
Following a hearing, it was decided that, in accordance with the Articles and policies of the Union, Mr Nuttall should be dismissed from his post with immediate effect. The decision may be subject to an appeal.
An Acting President will be announced in due course. They will take office immediately and fill the role until June to provide continuity of leadership for the Union at what is a very difficult time for students at Lancaster.
Subject to any appeal by George, we will shortly be going out for a by-election to fill the role of President for next academic year. Although having to take this action, the Trustee Board thanks Mr Nuttall for his work during his term of office over the previous year and the service he gave to students at Lancaster University.
Full details will be available on the Students’ Union website.
