Wisconsin, Louisville, and more

The end of the academic year is here and, as in the past, several votes of no confidence are in the spotlight.

Yesterday, the Faculty Senate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison voted no confidence in the system head and the Board of Regents.  Faculty cited concerns about new tenure policies and the state of shared governance.  Last week, I spoke with WKOW-TV and the Cap Times to discuss the vote.

Last month, various faculties at the University of Louisville held “polls” of no confidence against President James Ramsey.  The results will be revealed on May 4.  I spoke with Insider Louisville and the Courier-Journal to discuss the implications of the potential vote.

I have added additional votes to the database, too.  Please feel free to share more votes or other comments at any time!
