Faculty at Winona State U. Vote No Confidence in Minn. System’s Chief

The Chronicle of Higher Education
October 21st, 2014

Faculty members at Winona State University have voted no confidence in the chancellor of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, Steven J. Rosenstone.
The system’s chief marketing and communication officer, Kim Olson, told Minnesota Public Radio that “we have not been formally contacted by any Winona faculty about a vote of ‘no confidence’ or to discuss any concerns that would lead to a vote of this kind.” She also noted that the faculty association on the campus comprises only 28 members.
Winona State’s Faculty Association Senate cited “a recurring pattern of secrecy” among system leaders in the unanimous vote, along with concerns about spending and a lack of student and faculty input in long-term planning.
The university, which enrolls about 8,200 undergraduates, is one of 54 campuses in the system.
