Erratum

CORRECTION: It was reported in the last issue that Concordia’s Administration had released $200,000 in student funds to the CSU after a meeting between CSU president-elect Sabine Friesinger and Rector Frederick Lowy. In fact, no meeting ever took place. A mix-up occurred within the administration when, on April 25, an e-mail was sent to Friesinger asking her to meet with Lowy to discuss the funds.

CORRECTION: It was reported in the last issue that Concordia’s Administration had released $200,000 in student funds to the CSU after a meeting between CSU president-elect Sabine Friesinger and Rector Frederick Lowy. In fact, no meeting ever took place. A mix-up occurred within the administration when, on April 25, an e-mail was sent to Friesinger asking her to meet with Lowy to discuss the
funds. Although Friesinger never responded to the e-mail, the funds were
released one week later. This led members of the administration to assume that the meeting had taken place, information they passed on to the Concordian. The actual reason for the release is that the administration felt due process had been served during March’s elections, therefore restoring the legitimacy of the CSU.
The Concordian regrets the error.
