Represents NMU on Kennecott Citizens' Committee
Les Wong has asked Mike Roy (Finance and Administration)
to serve on the Kennecott Minerals Company's Citizens' Advisory
said that while the university is not advocating for or against
the mining endeavor, it is important that a member of NMU’s senior
administration have access to factual information on how Kennecott’s
Eagle Project may impact Northern’s physical campus.
we have students, faculty and staff who feel strongly one way or
the other about this issue and I respect that," Wong said.
"I suspect some of those people will also be on the advisory
group. But my intent in asking Mike to serve in this role is solely
to protect the university’s interest. For instance, we have heard
that the trucking route may include a part of campus and, of course,
that would have consequences to NMU and our students and employees.”
advisory group is slated to begin meeting in late September.
