Faculty votes no confidence in Board of Trustees
MSU faculty called for the resignation of all MSU Trustees.
In a 61-4 decision with five abstentions, MSU Faculty Senate passed a vote of no confidence in the MSU Board of Trustees Tuesday.
The vote was held following the appointment of MSU Interim President John Engler, which faculty and student liaisons objected to.
In a statement released prior to the appointment, Faculty Senate said the board ignored student and faculty recommendations to choose a candidate with "significant experience devising and implementing programs to mitigate sexual harassment and sexual abuse," ideally a woman with extensive experience in academic leadership.
"(The trustees) seem to have selected, without appropriate consultation from the MSU Community, an individual with no academic leadership experience as Interim President," the statement read. "We have issues with both the selection itself, and a selection process that used meetings with students, faculty, and Deans to give the appearance of consultation."
