S.C. State President gets 'no confidence' vote

Jan 14, 2011 12:58:00 PM - thestate.com
South Carolina State University’s Faculty Senate voted Thursday it has "no confidence" in President George Cooper and his administration.

The vote was 19-3 with one abstention. Faculty Senators are elected by their respective departments.

Thomas Cassidy, an English professor and vice president of the Faculty Senate, sent a document containing the reasons for the vote to members of the university’s Board of Trustees Thursday evening.

The group outlined what it thinks are Cooper’s shortcomings in the in the document. They include his failure to:

- Provide and implement a compelling vision for the university. - Adhere to shared governance by refusing to communicate with the elected representatives of the faculty. - Uphold policy and properly oversee the financial status, including the cash flow, of the university as found by the outside financial consulting firm Elliott Davis.
