Michigan State University’s Faculty Senate overwhelmingly approved a vote of no confidence in the school’s Board of Trustees.
Members of the Faculty Senate approved the no confidence vote by a 55-4 margin Tuesday. The vote comes after Faculty Senate leaders sent a letter to the Board of Trustees last week, demanding it stop interfering with the academic management of the university. The letter concerned an investigation initiated by the board into the forced resignation of Sanjay Gupta as the Broad College of Business dean. The board hired an outside firm to conduct the investigation.
