Thank you for visiting!
I am a doctoral student in the Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA) program at The Ohio State University (OSU), where I study university governance. I created this website to share my master’s thesis data on faculty votes of no confidence against college/university presidents.
Several faculty members and administrators from various colleges and universities have contacted me about my research; in fact, some have used my work to consider or prepare for no-confidence votes at their institutions. Others are just curious about the frequency of these votes, reason for them, etc. (Typically, shared governance conflicts lead to these votes.)
I have uploaded my “database” of these votes to help faculty, administrators, students, or researchers. I may occasionally add news or thoughts about university governance to this site, too.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or comments!
