Campuses at the First Nations University of Canada are receiving some special visitors this week.


Three university presidents, representing the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, are on a fact-finding tour.


Controversy arose in February of last year over several firings and suspensions that took place at the FNUC.


Some teachers complained of political interference, prompting a warning by the AUCC that membership in its body could be revoked.


Association spokesperson Christine Tausig-Ford says the presidents will talk to everyone at the school about the situation, including students and alumni.


She adds suspended or fired professors can also take part, but their comments will have to come through written submissions.
