Faculty votes 94 percent "no confidence" in Board of Trustees

A 94 percent majority of Kean faculty members voted "no confidence" in the leadership of the Board of Trustees in a recent anonymous survey.

The American Arbitration Association (AAA) conducted the ballot from April 24 to May 11. Instructions were mailed to the homes of 313 eligible full-time faculty members and librarians. A turnout of 66 percent of voters-207 faculty members-responded.

The results show 194 of participants voting no confidence and only 12 that support the leadership of the Board of Trustees.

The results are even more disparate than the 83 percent vote of "no confidence" in the leadership President Dawood Farahi.

"This vote shows that our faculty and librarians have lost faith in the Trustees' willingness or ability to perform their basic oversight duties," said James Castiglione, president of the Kean Federation of Teachers. "They have allowed university management to exercise unchecked power and to evade any accountability."

These results come after the Board of Trustees voted in March to back Farahi despite resume inaccuracies.
