Financial Concerns and Vote of No Confidence on UNF President

September 1, 2016

Questioner: Anonymous

Posed to: Radha Pyati, President/Designee, UNF Faculty Association

Given that we are last in the state metrics and likely to stay there, given that we have no serious strategic plan, given that the failed experiment of raising the freshman profile has resulted in backfilling with unprepared transfers, given that the failed experiment of requiring freshmen to live on campus has cost us enrollments and revenue, given that there are no raises for faculty while certain administrators continue to get five-figure raises, what is the process for calling for a vote of no confidence in John Delaney as President of UNF?

Comment by FA President Radha Pyati:
I will begin the Question and Response period with a response to a question asked at the September 2016 meeting.

Regarding a vote of no confidence on the President, there is no procedure for such a vote. But there is a current opportunity for input, in the form of the Board of Trustees (BOT) Presidential evaluation process occurring this October. As FA President, I am your representative to the BOT, so please let me know your input via phone (X1918), face-to-face, or email (radha.pyati@unf.edu) by Monday, October 24.
