Vowing to "take back control" of the Faculty Senate by electing an
administration-friendly slate of candidates, an administrator at Kean
University has raised eyebrows with an apparent directive to his
subordinates to bring him the votes.
The Faculty Senate, which is holding elections through May 8, is
scheduled to discuss the matter on Tuesday at the public university in
Senate officers sent an email to members last week telling them that they were aware of the administrator’s email and reiterating that voting is a private matter.
"You should never be placed in a position," it said, "to feel that
you have to respond to someone (peer or supervisor) if asked who you
voted for, if you voted, or plan to vote or ask you to show evidence
that you have voted."
