Interview: University of Akron

I’ve added several votes of no confidence to the database today.

Last Friday, the Faculty Senate at the University of Akron held a vote of no confidence against President Scott Scarborough.  It passed 50-2.  Following the vote, I shared some thoughts with the Akron Beacon Journal.

I also added two votes from Loyola University in New Orleans.  The first occurred in 2006, when the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences held a vote against President Kevin Wildes.  Last month, the university’s Senate passed a vote against President Wildes.

City Colleges of Chicago, Illinois’ largest community college system, voted no confidence in their system chancellor earlier this month.

Finally, 92% of the faculty at Hocking College voted no confidence in their president.  Ordinarily, I exclude union votes from the database; however, I’m sharing the news because Hocking College’s president has received four votes of no confidence at other institutions.
