An Administrator Turns Heads With a Pledge to ‘Take Back Control’ of the Faculty Senate

The Chronicle of Higher Education

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 New Jersey.
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."
