SACKVILLE, N.B. – The president of Mount Allison University has been given a two-year contract extension.

The board of regents at the Sackville, N.B. school says Robert Campbell will now serve as president through June 2018.

The board also approved the university’s 2014-15 operating budget and says tuition for full-time Canadian students will increase by $219 to $7,464.

It says the increase is in line with the tuition cap allowed by the province.

During its meeting Tuesday the board also turned down a request by the students’ union for a tuition rebate following the three-week faculty strike earlier this year.

However, the board says it will consider whether help should be given to students who were most adversely effected by the walkout.
