U. of West Florida Trustees and Faculty Clash Over President’s Performance

The Chronicle of Higher Education
September 16th, 2014

Faculty members at the University of West Florida and the institution’s Board of Trustees are at odds over the performance of the university’s president, Judith A. Bense, the Pensacola News Journal reported.
Last week the university’s Faculty Senate voted no confidence in Ms. Bense’s leadership. Faculty members asserted that she had put the university’s accreditation and state financing at risk by overseeing lax admissions policies and that she had given priority to the university’s football program over its academics. The university was one of three Florida colleges to have a portion of its state support withheld because of a low rating under the state’s performance-based financing model.
