St. Francis Xavier University, a Roman Catholic university in Nova Scotia, is reviewing the automatic designation of the area's bishop as chancellor of the university, The Chronicle Herald reported. The chancellor's position includes both ceremonial duties and membership on the governing board. Such arrangements are common at many Catholic institutions, but students have been calling for an end to the tradition, noting that it excludes women and non-Catholics from consideration for the position of chancellor.
